Tips for birding Galloway Park
There is a paved multi-use trail around the perimeter of the park, approximately 1.5 miles, mostly flat. There are a few spots with gently rolling terrain.
There really isn’t a reason to carry a scope. You can find birds here year-round. The spring is especially nice, but you can find interesting things in all seasons.

About Galloway Park
Galloway Park is located on Galloway Road 2 miles south of West Broad Street. Take West Broad Street exit off of I-270.
Restroom on site, portable toilet.
There is handicap accessible parking and the trail is accessible to folks with wheelchairs. You can’t bird by car, though. You may end up sharing the trail with people on bicycles or rollerblades, or pushing strollers.
A Tour of Galloway Park
by Amy Collins-Warfield
The south end of the property borders a field. Sparrows, Indigo Buntings, and swallows are common. This part of the field has a low spot that sometimes floods. We have viewed shorebirds and ducks in this wet spot.
The northern half of the property is open grassland. You can find Grasshopper Sparrows, Savannah Sparrows, and Eastern Meadowlarks here in the spring, until they mow it down in early or mid-summer. Eventually this will become a dog park and a Frisbee golf course.
The northern end of the property also has a hedgerow and tree line with field behind it. Look for Blue Jays, cardinals, assorted sparrows, catbirds, thrashers, robins, goldfinches, House Finches, and wrens. Migrating warblers can also be found here.
