Taylor Creek Park Wetlands is a seasonally wet meadow which has had its topography enhanced to create mounds, pools and a nature trail. The restored wetland provides an opportunity to improve wildlife habitat and to increase native plant diversity. Habitat structures have been incorporated into the wetland design to provide habitat for amphibians, turtles and birds.
