The nature centers are new and clean. The staff was exceptionally kind and helpful. There are live animals and dioramas plus other exhibits. It was slow the day we were there so we got individualized attention from the naturalist including a hand picked film about the local ecology in the theater, a private showing off the Kestrel flying and eating...

Stopped by after an Eco boat tour. It was informative and nicely laid out. The park is beautiful and the guides really love their jobs. The gift shop was nice and they offer senior citizens and military discounts.

Great place to spend time. Watched the 1hour movie and found it informative and depressing. The exhibition Hall had many examples of wild life from the area.

We visited and got info one day and went back to kayak two days later. The facility, boat put in area, is top notch. I ended my visit with a trip in an ambulance. Everybody there was supportive and we even got calls from both of the people we had spoken with at the center. Can't wait to go back... More

Great place to go visit! Great place for just a "little get away for the day"! Lots to do with little to no cost. Great for couples or groups.

We visited the 5 Rivers complex this past week. The park is very nice and the museum exhibits are interesting. The theater and gift shop are very nice. The personnel are quite knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. Will definitely visit again. The best part is that it is free to get in.

Nice, Informative, Great outdoor Eco Tour by Boat. Good value. I suggest you book ahead on line. The boat was full when we went in February. Plan to spend a bit of time walking the neighboring trails which highlight native trees/bushes and great for birding.
