Its a nice place to visit if your into nature. But if your going to take pictures just a heads up. If there are alot of people you won't see as much cause well there scarred. But if Your into long walks and just being out side great spot. Just heads up spray your self with tick repellent I have picked up a few ticks from this location.

Impressive nature center. Well maintained walking and bike paths going through estuaries out to bay. Some very nice elevated walkways over salt marsh terrain. Dogs allowed on leashes.

Cattus Island is a beautiful county park to take the entire family. In the summer, it is a must to check out the carnivorous plants and butterfly garden if you have kids. There are so many different trails each with unique scenery. Cattus Island is dog friendly, just be sure to rememebr poop bags to help keep it beautiful!

Loved this place. Well groomed paths, varied scenery, nice views of the water and not too crowded. Wheel chair accessible trails. New visitors center with spotless bathrooms. Peaceful place.

Wonderful walk on a sunny but brisk Sunday. Watched Ospreys building their nest and egrets hunting for lunch. Will definitely be back for more.
