“Olden Days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

I went to the Lichterman property as a young child to go swimming in the 3/4 acre pool and play in the big log cabin house(which burned to the ground). I love what they did to preserve the land.

“Great Day for a Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2009

As members of the Pink Palace Family of Muesums, we get free admission into Lichterman Nature Center. They are also a member of the ASTC, and offer reciprocal entry into many places world wide.
We come here often, even if just to go for a walk, or feed the fish. The place is designed to highlight the 4 seasons.
In the spring, the lilly pads are blooming. It the summer, the trees are full of folliage. There is a board walk the goes out among the tree tops. Although small, it is fun. Watch out of the geese, they get over protective of their nests when they have eggs.
In the fall, the colors are amazing. In the late winter, the bulbs are coming back up.
They offer a family "back pack" of equipment to help you and your family dig deeper into your enviroment. There are tape measures, magnifying glass, and many other things to enhance your visit. Our favorite thing to do is feed the fish from the bridge.
Although most of the attraction is out doors, there are 2 buildings. One hosts a small exhibit of "stuffed" animals of the area (the skunk is our favorite). The other building houses live exhibits including opossums and snakes. From inside this buiding you can view into a small pond the buts up against the glass. There are a couple of big fish in there!
If it is lunch time, bring your own! There are a couple of vending machines, but that is it. There are table inside and outside for your dining pleasure.

It really is a hidden gem in the heart of Memphis!
