I’ve been going to the Nature Center since I was a kid in the 70s. No I have small children and it’s even better. We go at least once a month throughout the year and now is a perfect time with the cha... more »
Ok, I'm not sure how I went so long without knowing about this park but it's incredible! We went today looking for paw paws and they were knowledgeable and able to direct us to the exact tree we wanted to see. We jogged around some of the trails and they were all beautiful and clear. There are various gardens and a good variety of plants and wildlife. We saw people with their strollers, walkers and canes getting around and even someone doing yoga off to the side. The park has several Ed events we're excited to check out, it's worth your time
If you're going to come here, I recommend coming late to really see what they have to offer! The night hikes are great, and the hundreds of tree frogs are mesmerizing! There's a lot of great studying, reading, drawing, or whatever kind of hobby you like areas! I love coming here to draw. The baby bunnies and deer are so cute, and it's a good place to teach kids that nature doesn't have to be scary! I haven't personally been in the nature center, but it seems cool! There's so called chickadee feeding, but I haven't done it. Overall, a great place.
