Highlights

The Port Aransas Wetland Park is a joint project of the City of Port Aransas, TXDOT and TPWD.

A boardwalk and observation platform overlook a wetland basin that may be thick with a variety of waterfowl and shorebirds during rainy periods.

Unlike the ponds at the Birding Center, this site is ephemeral. The park itself has been landscaped to establish a native dune community, and during migration the scrubby vegetation and grasses may attract a number of migrant land birds.
