Sunny Point Park is roughly a 14-acre low and high marsh wetland complex located along the eastern edge of Sunny Point. The wetlands lie within the Switzer Creek drainage and are part of the overall Mendenhall wetlands complex. Lyngbye sedges dominate the property, which may be the most important plant for Canada Geese and other waterfowl, according to the Mendenhall Wetlands, An Important Bird Area. Lyngbye sedges also play a role in marine food chains by trapping algae that feed juvenile fish. The property was purchased in 2010 as a part of theĀ Accreted Lands Project, and will remain in permanent conservation status.
