Just minutes from downtown Augusta, the 1,150-acre Phinizy Swamp Nature Park offers you the chance to see great blue heron, red-shouldered hawk, river otter, and the elusive alligator in their natural setting. Hear the chorus of a thousand tree frogs, delight in the iridescence of summer dragonflies, and view the splendor of natural wetlands. The park is free and open to the public 365 days a year from dawn until dusk.
