Fun in the Sun
The Liberty County school year is coming close to the end, and we are sure you are trying to figure out fun outdoor activities do to with the family while still keeping a distance from others. We have several spots you can visit with the family and enjoy the outdoors!
Pack up some sandwiches, fruit, plenty of water and your favorite blanket and make your way to Bryant Commons. Bryant Commons has beautiful scenery and plenty of space for kids to run and play. From reading a book, to flying a kite, there is a lot to do. The 15-acre lake also has a trail that you can walk and enjoy the scenery or you can simply go for a jog. Do you have a furry friend? Well don’t leave them out on all the fun, you can take them as well because the park also contains Cisco’s dog park!
The Historic Baptismal Trail
For those of you with older kids, the Historic Baptismal Trail is an educational and beautiful spot for everyone to learn a little more about Liberty County history. How cool is it that school is out and you and your family can go walk on a trail and still learn about Liberty County history? The Historic Baptismal Trail was an active holy place for African Americans of the Geechee community from the 1840s-1940s. The Historic Baptismal Trail has a boardwalk, picnic tables and interpretive signs that explain the significance of the area. Go and check it out soon! Oh, and you don’t want to forget that bug spray just in case!
Jones Creek Park
If you are planning a day trip with only a few close family members and don’t know where to go, this is the place for it. This hidden gem is on Isle of Wight. It’s a picture-perfect spot to spend the day, whether you go out on the water or stay on shore. If you and your family enjoy fishing then guess what, you can fish at this location, and you can even take a boat to put in the water if you have one.

Cay Creek Wetlands Interpretive Center
This beautiful location is rich in biological diversity, housing a variety of trees, flowers, birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects. There are multiple interpretive signs that go into detail about the wildlife. This is also another place where you can learn while enjoying the outdoors, just be careful and watch out for those reptiles. The trail takes you through the wetlands to a 15-foot observation tower for a bird’s eye view of the surrounding area!
