    June-Watch baby snapping turtles (& mamas) swimming about searching for food. & Around noon, sunning on the rock outcropping along the northern end of the pond. But don't touch, they bite pretty hard.

    Bridal parties getting their photos taken, outdoor fitness bootcamps and street performers all gather in one place – it’s one of our favorite places to people watch.

    Look for the enormous alligator snapping turtle in the pond. You'll know it when you see it.
