“1100 acres of beautiful Georgia swamp”
Located on 1100 acres and just minutes from downtown Augusta, Phinizy Swamp Nature Park offers visitors the chance to see Blue Heron, Red-Shouldered Hawk, Otter, Alligator and the elusive Bobcat in their natural setting. Visitors can experience the thrill of hearing Kingfisher and the chorus of a thousand Tree Frogs, or delight in the myriad of summer Dragonflies. To accommodate the diverse ways the public uses the Nature Park, the Academy has developed a variety of events that we hope will appeal to every age and interest level. To see the specific dates of some of the events listed below, click on the calendar link at the top of this page. We think there is something for everyone to do at the Swamp! For more energetic outdoor activity enthusiasts, we offer an annual Swamp Stomp 5K (held in conjunction with Earth Day) and periodic family bike rides. For scouts, we offer group tours, free Swamp Saturday tours (if you book early), and occasional special scout days. For the adventurous, we offer moonlight nature hikes & special meteor viewings! For families we offer group bike rides and summer dusk walks. And don’t forget about our annual Earth Day Augusta celebration!
The Phinizy Swamp and Nature Park in Augusta is part of the Phinizy Center and offers guided hikes, bike rides, and other community events. There are many short, kid-friendly hikes, a fishing pond, a kid’s play area, and several boardwalk overlooks. You can bike ride on some of the trails and see lots of different types of wildlife – like alligators and snakes! They host birthday parties, summer camps, and homeschooling events, too!
Why you should visit: They have so many different, short, and kid-friendly trails to choose from! And they offer tons of events for the family, from guided full moon hikes to family campouts to story time and guided hikes for the little ones!
