Our Take

Kiroli is one of the few sites that we list that isn’t free, but it’s worth the dollar per person price of admission. It’s a fun park to visit, especially during the warmer months. Kiroli has numerous trails that wind through piney woods and over water, making it perfect for all kinds of suburban wildlife.

Our favorite things at the park are the bunnies and ducks, but we do understand that bunnies and ducks aren’t for everyone. So, we’d like to point out that you can also meet other cool birds, like egrets and herons, blue jays, cardinals, and other kinds of songbirds; raccoons, numerous snake and turtle species, and rumor has it, you can even meet humans there.

Just watch out for joggers while you’re there, and you’ll be fine.
