Morgan Park lies on the tranquil Peace River; it’s perfect for a morning or afternoon stroll with the family and/or friends. There are three trail loops with more than 3 miles of interconnecting trails. The first half mile of the north trail is paved and suitable for wheelchairs; motorized carts for visitors with mobility issues are permitted on this section. Stately live oaks, bald cypress and riparian woodlands shelter woodpeckers and a diversity of songbirds such as Great Crested Flycatcher, Tufted Titmouse, House Wren, Northern Parula, Black-and-White Warbler, Common Yellowthroat and Painted Bunting. Trail sections along the river provide glimpses of Belted Kingfisher, Little Blue Heron, Green Heron and Snowy Egret. Circling above the river you might spy Black and Turkey Vultures, Osprey, Swallow-tailed Kite, Red-shouldered Hawk and Red-tailed Hawk in search of a meal. Picturesque wooden bridges at several stream crossings are nice places to stop, listen and soak in the surroundings. Along the trails and streams keep a watchful eye for shade loving butterflies like Zebra Longwings and turtles that are often out soaking up the sun.
