  • Great place to take your kids and enjoy the outdoors Once a cranberry and apple farm owned by the Lynde family. It is now open free to the public. Preserved habitat so you are able to see wildlife and many species of birds, as it is a migrating resting spot . To protect the wildlife SIGNS ARE POSTED. Often seen (please do not feed the birds bread). And DO pay for parking it helps keep this wonderful place going for generations to learn an explore.
  • It was my first time visiting Lynde Shores this past weekend and it really was truly beautiful. Many different animals hanging out but the one thing I didn't enjoy witnessing is people feeding deer by the bagful pretty much out of their hands! There are signs that warn not to but some people aren't the smartest clearly! Wish people knew they were doing more harm than good (especially if there's corn in the feed).
