Such as beautiful place. Loved the trails through the swamp, up over boardwalks and passing beautiful mossy trees. Lots of people birdwatching and this place has the feel of a hidden gem. Worth a visit!

Amazing diverse biome where you wouldn't expect it. Leave the city and there it is! Hiking, birding, picnicking, playing, and best of all learning! Love, love, love this place!

Phinizy Swamp is a really cool place of nature in Augusta...a great place to visit although people are a little reluctant to 'go to the swamps'! Make sure you take mosquito spray.
