Though quieter than some nearby parks, rest assured you won't be alone walking the Liberty Trail. Grey squirrels often run along the handrails as they prepare to forage for food in the marsh below. Herons, egrets and other waterfowl often stand among the reeds and lily pads looking for small fish, while alligators and turtle are a fairly common sight a little further away from the boardwalk.
Several species of water snakes have been known to drop by here and there, though usually not in the winter months. The snakes and gators are a pretty effective case for why swimming is not allowed at city parks except the Whispering Pines Park pool; diving from piers (and boardwalks) is also prohibited.
