  • This is a little urban gem. The staff holds scouting classes and other nature viewing activities for a fee. Nice place. Free parking and a well-cared for trail for families-even strollers will be fine...  more »
  • Excellent venue for smaller children. In the winter time, it is an excellent place to bring the kids to burn a little extra energy, especially if they're excited by animals and nature in general. There are plenty of toy dinosaurs to play with, as well as some to dress up in. There are quite a few turtles in tanks, a few snakes and a couple of other small creatures to look at. Recommend the parking lot that is a 5 minute walk away by nature trail. Even in winter it's nice to just get the kids walking outside if even for a short time.
  • Very nice nature center. Several live frogs and snakes to look at. Other interactive exhibits with animal fur, sounds, bones. There are also costumes and toys for the kids to try.
