Cypress Grove Nature Park

West Airways Blvd. (Hwy. 70 west)

 Cypress Grove is a preserve for indigenous wildlife, waterfowl, plants and trees. Just minutes from downtown Jackson and easily accessible from Interstate 40, the Park annually attracts tens of thousands of visitors. It offers over a mile of winding, elevated boardwalk through a cypress forest. The Park’s features include: Rockwell Observation Tower, 25 acre Wood Duck Lake, Killdeer Pond, and the Aerie Trail Raptor Center.  A sanctuary for injured hawks, eagles, owls and other birds of prey, the Raptor Center is also an educational facility. The Park regularly offers educational classes and programs on nature, wildlife and ecology.  In addition to education and preservation, Cypress Grove Nature Park is a favorite location to walk, fish or simply enjoy the serenity of the cypress forest. Gazebos and benches along the walkway provide quiet spots to rest and observe nature. Visitors may spot ducks, heron, beaver, deer or any of the waterfowl or wildlife that make the park their home.

Cypress Grove Nature Park is located on West Airways Blvd. (Hwy. 70 west) in Jackson, TN and is open seven days a week, 7:30am until dusk. Facilities include a picnic pavilion and restrooms. Group tours are available by appointment. Admission to the park is free.

Greatly disappointed at how much this place has deteriorated. It had been several years since our last visit, when we were there before they had birds and was a very nice place, we enjoyed our visit then. I can't even imagine how Jackson, or Madison County could let this happen. Very disappointed. Would not recommend to anyone.

This is a beautiful place Beautiful scenery if u can overlook all the trash. I could not believe the amount of trash and the oil Oh my God the oil, it was everywhere. These poor creatures living in this forest can't have access to oil free water. There must have been some kind of oil spill somewhere nearby to do this kind of damage. This place could be so much better with a lot of TLc!! Best of luck!!

The natural beauty of the park is a bonus because the wildlife displayed throughout has several endangered species
