Heritage Park, a town owned property in Warren, is a haven for birds. In fact if you are a bird photographer I would highly suggest this location. There is a small pull off along the side of the road by utility pole 25 on Schoolhouse Road. The entrance is small with a wire gate and the path immediately turns right. This grass path follows what seems to be an old railroad bed. It first crosses a reservoir before coming to an open field. The field itself has no paths or trails but it has been recently mowed. I followed the outer perimeter of the field. The shrubs along the field are filled with birds and there is an osprey nest high above the field on a pole. At the time of this walk there was a family of osprey in the nest and the adult osprey made sure I knew of its presence as it circled above me while I was walking through the field. Besides the ospreys, of the several birds I saw here, some were a red tailed hawk, catbirds, robins, cardinals, blue jays, sparrows, and chickadees to name just a few. I also could here frogs in the distant wetlands.
I did not find a trail map on-line.
