  • We visited on October 26, 2020. Well maintained pathways offer a nice place for a walk, and the fall colours were quite good. There is no longer a pathway all the way to Lake St.Clair since they have allowed invasive phragmites to take over much of the natural marshland.
  • Found this place by accident, it's a cute small conservation area it's just too bad that is near houses. Supposedly there is also a beach there but I was not able to access it due to the tall grass
