  • This place was unexpectedly nice. We have passed by it for 3 years kinda wondering whats inside. There are both paved and dirt hiking and running rails within the park. We took our dogs and kids, and it made for a very nice outing. Most of the trails are very covered by overhanging tree shade, so even though the temps were in the 80s it was very cool. It is a nature education center, so we did encounter groups of kids on guided tours, but no problem there. We all enjoyed this facility, and we will be regulars.
  • We loved this little nature center. Multiple exhibits with live animals, very interactive and educational. Multiple short trails around the nature center, and you can walk a little further to see a small little cave. Overlooks the beautiful Fox River. Lots of opportunity to enjoy nature. A great place to take the kids for a walk or visit the inside nature center. Games and touchy feeling of critters and fish tanks and snakes to observe.
