Wetlands Trail at Justin Wilson Memorial Park

Justin Wilson Memorial Park has a wetlands trail that many people are not aware of.  The trailhead sign is tucked away behind Pavilion E near the tennis courts.  Be sure to bring your binoculars. I saw two osprey families in their nests at the park. If you visit early in the morning you will see lots of bunny rabbits which your kids might enjoy watching, however, the water lilies might not be open yet which are in bloom and beautiful to see. The park will seem different according to the time of day you visit.

If arriving at the park by bicycle I would walk the bike along the trail, which is quite short, as it’s a great place to stroll and linger. You will see me riding my bike along the boardwalk in the YouTube video since there were no other visitors right then and I was having fun experimenting with an Akaso Brave 6 action camera. If you plan to use the park as a starting point for a bike ride you might enjoy riding over to Pendarvis Cove Park or the covered bridge in the Rustic Hills neighborhood.
