Description

John A. Wannemacher Nature Reserve is located on 110 acres of reclaimed agricultural land and serves as a perfect habitat for wildlife amidst the surrounding farmland and residential developments. The wetland area attracts a large variety of water fowl making it the perfect place for bird watching.

With the creation of this beautiful park, the surrounding residential communities have been provided with green space and a place for passive leisure activities. It has also had a positive impact on area water quality by reducing storm water run off which decreases pollution.

The 1.82 mile nature trail leads you through open grassland, over Boone Creek and past a beautiful woodland and wetland area. This park is the perfect setting for hiking, running and wildlife viewing.
