This park is a great place to take your children to explore the wet grassland riparian area along the slow-moving River Raisin. The walk is easy and it is not too far to the river banks from the parking lot. Fans of trains will get a great kick out of seeing the remnants of the abandoned rail line where it crosses the river.
A wide variety of birds, turtles, and river animals inhabit the area.
