Now Open: Western Mangrove Walkway
The western portion of the revitalized Mangrove Walkway is now open! In addition to beautiful new landscaping, new benches were recently installed along the northern part of the walkway by the Van Wezel. Since construction is still ongoing on the eastern part of the bayou, we’re encouraging visitors to stay on the designated pathways. Download the latest walking map here.
