View of Morris Creek Preserve
This site offers a view of the Morris Creek Preserve's salt marsh.  Access to the creek is restricted by vegetation for the most part, however some areas might accommodate a closer look at creek.  The preserve is located within a residential neighborhood, and visitors are relegated to parking along the street on a relatively narrow city road.  There is also parking on a small patch of mowed grass on Meadow View Rd across from residents.
