Highly vegetated walk with a few small ponds. Easy, short level walking. Much of the flora is labeled. The staff is friendly and helpful. Sept 30, 2016 mid afternoon was slow for birding.

We visited Frontera Audubon in search of rare birds. The staff were very accommodating in that extended hours were being offered seven days a week. The park is a wonderful place to enjoy the birdlife of South Texas.
