'So marvellous is the landscape that I couldn't even call it a landscape. It is a continuous manifestation of wonder' - John Moriarty

It is known that Walking in Nature really does help the mind and the body. So why not come down to the Tralee Bay Wetlands Eco & Activity Park an immerse yourself in Nature. Remember for your own safety and the safety of all practice social distancing at all time. Home to many wonderful species that inhabit our Nature Reserve. Switch off from the busy noises of the Town and stroll your way through our Activity Lake Walk where the Sounds of the Lake, Laughter and the Salted Scent of the Wild Atlantic Ocean will surround you. You will see and hear the different breeds of seagulls coming in to shelter from the weather out on the Wild Atlantic.

Early Morning if there is a storm you will see Oyster Catchers taking sanctuary and enjoying a worm or two while they wait with us safely until the storm disperses. You will see our Mute Swans - Fiachra and Fionnula who move from the front lakes to the inner Wetland Sanctuary many times during the day. Witnessing their flight is an awesome sight and seeing them land is wonderous. Our Mallards love this lake though they also often prefer the inner wetlands, especially at busy times. You will see them sometimes in large groups flying up and down the canal, calling into us to enjoy the lakes. If you hear a loud buzzing noise overhead look up, it's more than likely one of our Amazing Dragonflies! Another most wonderful sound, usually early morning is the Curlew's cry as she flies over, this rare bird is a special sight to look out for.
