Park Walk | Shoreline Stroll


The peninsula, which opened in 2023, is the largest stand-alone recreational space in the park with its 5.5 acres of incredible public green space.

You’ll have the chance to learn more about these fascinating ecosystems from the River Project team. Grab your binoculars and try to spot some of the shorebirds seen regularly dabbling in our salt marsh, or see if you can spot some of the resident hawks that use the light poles as a perch to find their next meal.
