Oak Canyon Nature Center reviews
This was a relaxing stroll along a stream in a beautiful park. The cotrast in the rich vegetation fed by the stream and the dry hillsides was striking.

So nice to get inside a quiet area with plenty of greenery and trails to casually walk through as well as some higher trails to challenge us.

This was a place I was taken to as a kid by my mom, now I finally had the chance to take my daughter. I always loved it, and it seemed she did as well. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars on this visit, was because the visitor center was closed and that was one of the highlights in the day. They also had construction on one of the trails with a fence blocking the trail, and nothing on the map to identify it. It was still a great trip and an amazing experience to share with my own child.
Gorgeous location for an outdoor wedding! I photographed one here in July, and the trees provided lots of much-needed shade for the hot weather. Trails are wide and relatively flat, so very easy to walk on in wedding attire. The amphitheater is a great blank canvas to decorate however you'd like, and the trees provide such a beautiful, natural backdrop! If your wedding is in the spring or summer, just bring some bug spray as there were quite a few gnats around that love sweat ;)
