This place is family friendly. It has a beautiful trail to run/walk in. It is located on Stephen F. Austin State University property and there's always plenty of people around if your concerned about safety issues.

Visited for the Bird Days festivities Feb 2017. A great place for a leisurely stroll or a birding jaunt, with a well constructed marsh boardwalk.

Excellent winding walkways through wooded areas and swamp areas. Don't visit on a 96 degree day. Also, mind the woodland walks to make sure you know where you are going. There are signs showing names of plants and the work being done to bring back...More
