THINGS TO DO WHILE YOU Enjoy Your Visit! PARKS BIRDING & NATURE Cadillac Square Park This is a beautiful park, rich in local history. The live oak trees throughout this historic site are all that remains of the home of Governor Cadillac and the capital of the Louisiana Territory. The park provides picnic tables and bathrooms for the general public. It is also a central location for access to the island-long Bike Path. Magnolia Park This is a very small, pedestrian-access only roadside park located between the ferry landing and Historic Fort Gaines. Originally designed to give walk-on visitors from the ferry a shaded spot to picnic and cool-off, it has also Bike path access. Besides picnic tables and benches, a porch swing hanging from a large magnolia limb is also provided. Quarles Skate Park Whether you are young, or just young at heart, grab your board and head out for our new skate park!
