Pretty spot on a nice day. Nothing extraordinary . There are quite a few birds in the marshland. The wooden walkways make it easy to get around the area. I would say it is a great handicap accessible location.

A light rainstorm came through the night before. At 8am the sky was blue, birds were chattering away. Spent 2 hours taking a real slow walk around the trail. Numerous assortment of birds, both in the trees and on the lake. What a calming experience.

The paths around the Celery Farm are relatively flat so even for those who would be challenged by hilly terrain (like me) this is really a perfect place to walk. My wife and I hiked around the main lake this morning and although it was...More

The Celery Farm offers a roughly one mile walk around a lake that is often filled with migratory birds. It's a quiet place though not terribly far from busy highways. Highly recommended for birders who list what they've seen on a sign-in sheet at the...More
