The Wetlands

Wildlife Viewing

The aptly named Wetlands is just downstream from the Pony Pasture and is bordered on the east by the Willow Oaks Country Club and to the south by Stratford Hills, a residential area.

The Wetlands includes walking trails, a large meadow surrounded by swamp forest, and a shallow pond with wildlife viewing blinds. One of the three trails within follows the raised berm of the old quarry railroad, and a number of footbridges help to keep your feet dry!

This wooded, swampy parcel is an easy stroll from the Pony Pasture lot and a small beach provides some access to the water.
