Albany -- Business at the Parks at Chehaw is down during January and February, generally the two coldest months of the year. Park managers say foot traffic always depends on the weather.

Even though people aren't coming out now they expect a big upswing in business this spring because the Birds of Prey exhibit is coming along.

They say it's a good time to come out and enjoy the peacefulness outdoors because there aren't many crowds right now.

"A lot of people are still coming out on a regular basis for using our walking trail, and while they're on that walking trail it's nothing unusual for them to catch a glimpse of the deer walking through the park," said Ben Kirkland.

Chehaw's walking trail is a one mile trek through trees, nature, and wildlife.
