The boardwalk is the perfect balance of scenic cityscape and relaxing nature walk.
The views are simply breathtaking at any angle.
The trail circles around the 13 acres of restored wetland.
Before restorations, the area had been a trash-filled storm drain runoff. It's always great to see efforts to restore places to their natural state. It's our motto, after all.
Different sculptures are scattered all along the trail.
The park was named in honor of Bill Clark, a local political leader and outdoor enthusiast.

Multiple species share the box but the Brazillian Free-Tailed is the most common to spot.
