Allow several hours (or more) to walk the many paths and to sample the many birds (including osprey) and varied vegetation. Largly flooded in the winter (but still accessible) - best accessed summer through fall. Wonderful example of preserving and restoring a unique area adjacent...More

Wonderful place to enjoy well laid out trails, plants, birds, wildlife. Watched an Osprey feeding it's young, perched on a nest high on a pole right beside the trail - fantastic. Visitor Center has lots of interactive exhibits for youngsters.

This is a 600 acre park located south of Hillsboro on Hillsboro Highway. Here you can enjoy getting out into nature and watch several different species of birds. Ospreys are nesting right now which is a big hit with the kids!

I go there whenever I can: it's so close to the town, yet so much country. They do lots of school age education inside the center and on the trails.

From Hawks, to Eagles to Osprey, Jackson Bottom has it all. Best of all, it is free. There are so many other things to see and do at Jackson Bottom. It is a great educational experience for the entire family.
