Winged Deer Park
Site Description and Habitats
This park is located on the outskirts of north Johnson City. In addition to numerous athletic fields and lakeshore recreation facilities, there is a nice wooded area with paved and dirt trails, including a disc golf course. Walk the woodland trails and the disc golf course to cover the greatest variety of habitat. Early morning is best, especially on weekends, as the park may get crowded. Restrooms are available at the boat ramp.
A Bald Eagle nest is across the river near the boat ramp.
