Abundant and diverse wildlife!
As easy on the feet, as it is on the eyes!
There will be a spectacular collection of butterflies gathering on the asters and swamp daisies starting around the 1st of October. This fall event will only last through the first week of Novemeber. Last year we had about 150 plants that attracted hundreds and hundreds of butterflies, and Monarchs every day for thirty straight days. This year there are over 3000 plants, and the butterfly sightings should be spectacular, with possibly dozens of Monarchs seen every day.
One of the things that makes this so special is not only the total numbers and varieties of butterflies, but how they sit still on the asters. This makes photographing them extremely easy. There is nothing like this anywhere else in the Lowcountry! Here are a few photos from last year!
It's always cool seeing dolphins at Roxbury Park, but what about when three pair come into the cove right next to the cottage to feed . . . and a Bald Eagle flies in to check things out. Now don't expect to see this on every visit, but you never know what you're going to see at Roxbury Park!

UPDATE: Roxbury Park will remain closed due to damages from Hurricane Matthew.
PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS ROXBURY PARK AT THIS TIME. WALKING AROUND THE LOCKED GATE & ENTERING THE PARK IS NOT SAFE & CONSIDERED TRESPASSING.
Due to extensive damage to the avenue, trails and boardwalks from Hurricane Matthew the park will remain closed until further notice. The Town is working to re-open the park as soon as possible. We understand our visitors are eager to visit the park, please be patient as we work to remove down trees and other hazards.
Once Roxbury Park is re-opened, the Town will schedule volunteer workers to be on site each weekend until a new caretaker is hired and trained.
