This expansive wetland is located in an urban area. The sensitive wildlife habitat and diverse plant community serves multiple functions of flood control. The network of boardwalks and trails provides excellent opportunities for bird watching and appreciating the ecosystem.
**Please keep hands and fingers clear of the boardwalk as there are pinch points.
The boardwalk trail is an incredible floating trail comprised of more than 150 sections. This 3/4 mile long walking adventure provides a wonderful opportunity to experience the rich diversity of a wetland environment. It is typical to see and hear hundreds of birds and a variety of other wildlife.

The property was originally owned by the Bailey family, historic homesteaders. The county parks department and surface water management targeted the site as a regional stormwater detention facility. The site was later developed with an interpretive boardwalk.
