Just a nice and VERY well kept getaway near downtown Wheaton. Has wheelchair accessibility, all the paths are woodchips or wooden paths (think it's actually some type of plastic made to look like wood). Has some cool piers that go way out on the marshes and have benches on them. The place is teaming with robins and frogs but saw a few types of ducks, beaver, turtles, cardinal, indigo bunting, swamp sparrow, and a few others.. was very alive. Also has some kind of team courses, not completely sure what they are about, they are off limits without an instructor. Did see a large rock wall and many other types of obstacles in there. Easy trails, great place for a short nature walk.
