Rocky River Nature Park provides a healthy and diverse network of wildlife habitats at the edge of urban development. A wide variety of native species make this a valuable bird sanctuary for the public to enjoy. This property contains pristine wetlands, Bottomland Hardwoods and mixed age Hardwood Forest. Detailed studies of the site are underway by biology students at Anderson University. The Rocky River is the primary stream flowing through the City of Anderson and having a series of wetlands this large in the Upstate is unique. These bottomlands and wetlands function to buffer water flow through this developing urban area. While hunting with firearms will not be permitted, fishing, paddling, bird watching, and educational opportunities are a cornerstone intention for the creation of this Nature Park.
