Great walk for you and your family and dog. Yes, I'm careful to keep my 4-legged girl on a short leash so as not to disturb or freak out the bird life. Not a problem. Love this walk.

I usually ride my bicycle along the levee. It's a nice ride through the state's largest wetland. Always interesting.

This is a great effort to preserve this area and the eco-habitat in the marsh; which is a commitment to limit growth in Kailua

It's a nice short walk and if you are staying or living in the area certainly a good place to visit. I took the bus from Honolulu and spent more time on transit than being there. It's not meant to be a tourist attraction but...More

Outside Kailua visitors will find an expanse of open country different from most in Hawaii. There never were many wetlands in the islands thanks to the vertical topography. Wetlands are nature's nursery where babies are born and the food chain begins. That describes this waterfowl...More
