Enjoy a peaceful stroll on an elevated boardwalk through the wetlands while being able to see the transition into a salt water marsh. Look closely and you will notice the differences in the plant and animal life as it changes from fresh water to brackish waters. Then set a spell on the dock overlooking Cay Creek and enjoy the serenity of your surroundings. Birders are welcome to enjoy the 15-foot tower in the wetlands.
You may have the opportunity to observe, in their natural habitat, any number of wild animals, insects, snakes, lizards and birds. Plus there are more than 100 different species of plants and trees.
Walk quietly as you very well may see a small timid alligator trying to hide, a busy beaver, a boar rooting in the wetlands, a deer playing in the marsh grass, a raccoon busy looking for crayfish, a possum or an armadillo just wandering through the wetlands looking for some food, just to name a few animals that call Cay Creek their home.
If you enjoy wild birds, be our guests to sit quietly on top of the 15-foot tower. More than 100 different birds have been seen inside the park.
Cay Creek is open 9 a.m. to dusk. It's still a work in progress, but the boardwalk is open with a new birding tower and dock on Cay Creek Boardwalk. Round trip is just over 7/10ths of a mile. Wheelchair accesible.
