A clearly identifiable trail ensures trouble-free navigation of the park. Several points of interest off the main artery are clearly marked. A former mangrove pond, used as a garbage dump until the 1970’s, has been restored by the Bermuda Audubon Society to a wetland habitat. They also built an observation post where you can inconspicuously watch the bird life which the park attracts. Visitors can also marvel in the fairytale setting of the Blue Grotto. Stand on the wooden platform and lose yourself staring into the deep blue waters that fill this sunken cave. A limestone cavern, Causeway Cave, is immersed in lush sub-tropical vegetation.

Reviews and Additional Information
This is a nice little park. It is beautiful and secluded and not very busy at all. We went there after a visit to the Crystal Cave. The Crystal Cave is a formal tour but here you can do what you want. The water is very clear and you can see the fish.
