This is a short but enchanting walk, a place to look for birds and check out an interesting ecological habitat. It’s amazing to find it in the middle of a metropolitan area. The best part is the 0.25-mile boardwalk, which allows you to see a bit of the 100 acres of wetland in the heart of the city before ending in a shady, mature forest. There’s also a short and less interesting trail south of the boardwalk that links Warren, Jeanette, and Reservoir Avenues, and goes to a small manmade pool.
Directions: The boardwalk is located at the end of Russell St. Extension. Parking is on the edge of the cul-de-sac.
