Marlow Creek

Paddling past the kayak launch and through the Burning Basin takes you into Marlow Creek, another upstream area of Mallows Bay. Similar to Liverpool Cove, this creek is dominated by freshwater marsh plants such as Green arrow arum (tuckahoe) and Pickerel weed in the low marsh, and Wild rice and Cattail further back in the high marsh. In the late summer, you may also see the pink or white blooms of the Swam rose mallow, a marsh plant that may have inspired the park’s name.
