Nice little boardwalk nature walk in a larger all purpose park. First a butterfly garden, then the walk starts over a bay filled with fish, including pirhanas, and at least seven very large turtles, meaning from at least about 24 inches to about 30 inches in diameter. The rest of the boardwalk is through a swampy marsh filled with different... More

This is a nice little nature center with really great volunteers! Profesisionally done interactive display inside the center. We met Fritz the Tortoise and Artemis the adorable and playful Screech Owl! Nice butterly garden and short but nice boardwalk. One waterway had several large turtles and waterfowl to enjoy.

Dagger wing is just the place for a cool, sunny Sunday afternoon. You can take the short or the long course and the overhead perches offer a scenic view of the area.

My husband and I went to the park for a friendly stroll on a beautiful day. The Nature Center is closed on Sunday, but we still enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of the boardwalk and the overlook nearby. The park is huge, with many lakes and amenities. Daggerwing is just a small piece of this lovely county park.
