Watershed Nature Center reviews
... for a stroll or for enjoying wildflowers or for spotting wildlife or for photographing scenery or just to get outta the house for a change. The Nature Center volunteer staff have added at least..... more »
We take our dogs out to run at the watershed. The loop is exactly 1 mile so its a good distance for the boys. more »
Love this place! It's a great easy trail with lots to look at...wild flowers, water ways, ponds, butterflies etc. Great place for a dog walk or just to find some peace in nature. Plenty of benches if you want rest.
Very nice trails to walk on and good photo options. There are a lot of birds if you are one for birdwatching and a marsh walk that takes you across the marsh in order to get a closer look at the wildlife found in the reeds. This place is especially great in the summer time where nice shady trees can be found throughout your walk.
