When we say Brooklyn, New York has it all, we mean it! Did you know that in the Marine Park neighborhood there is a 530 acre wild nature trail and salt marsh with amazing vistas and a place where ospreys and pheasants nest, turtles rest, herons swoop and swans paddle peacefully through the backwater? Yes, it's a fact and you can access this nature preserve just South of Avenue U, near East 36th Street.

Each season on the trail reveals it's wonders, the brilliant colors of Fall and Winter and the glorious Springtime wildflowers all accessible from an easy to follow trail that meanders for about a mile across gently rolling terrain.

Along the trail there is a platform that juts out onto the water and provides an unobstructed view of the wetlands and additional walking trails across the salt marsh. Bleached white stones, waving grasses, puffy clouds against a brilliant blue summer sky and a 360 degree view over a stunning expanse! What more could you want in on a afternoon Summer stroll?

To the Birder's delight, according to the City's Audubon Society, Spring brings various migratory flyers such as Orioles and Cuckoos.  Summer brings a true variety of birds from Ospreys to Warblers to Terns, Autumn brings Raptors and Song birds and Winter Ducks and Loons and Song birds that do not head South for the Winter.

Adjacent to the Salt Marsh Nature Center is the designated Forever Wild Preserve to protect the trail and marshes. The City's Park Department opened this preserve in 2000 to provide an augmented experience for visitors.

When you're done strolling and hiking the Nature Trail and salt marshes go to the Kings Plaza Shopping Mall just a few blocks away for some ice cream or a nice lunch!
