We didn't even realize there were nature centers before visiting, and it was great to see living creatures inside in the dead of winter. The boys were super fascinated (and somewhat disgusted) to see the blind owl eat his lunch. :) We had no idea...More

Beautiful park, so much to look at. We drove around for 30 minutes and didn't see all of it. We will be going back again and exploring the park more. Something for everyone.

We are out-of-towners so we had to search for anther entrance to the grounds once we were detoured by the construction. Awesome, giant park. We went to hike, and we found most of the trail shady.

We saw a lot of animals ... The trails were easy to navigate and the scenery is awesome ... My nephew got to pet one of the snake in the center.
