Outdoor enthusiasts appreciate gorgeous vista views and an opportunity to spot ospreys, as well as swallows, finches, and other local birds. History buffs are interested in the preserve's role in naval history as an ammunition depot established in 1857 and later as a naval cemetery. Photographers and artists find ample space and inspiration to capture the natural beauty of the preserve on canvas and film. Everyone can appreciate the peaceful atmosphere of the preserve by exploring the park on its network of paved and gravel trails.
