This 1400-acre site includes a large cypress-lined lake, a golf course, and woodlands of pine/oak/sweetgum. The shady lake margin produces aquatic plants such as lizardtail and buttonbush that provide nectar for a number of butterfly species. Birds are numerous at the lake edge and include prothonotary warbler and nesting bald eagle. Anhingas occur here regularly in summer, and, in fall, the site attracts good numbers of migrating shorebirds. The boggy section along the entrance road is excellent for dragonflies. Although access conditions will change when the area becomes partially converted into a city park, for now, visitors should take particular care to avoid crossing fairways and greens.
