  • Very educational, lots of display, they have programs, benches to just sit and enjoy, many trials, and nice gift shop.  more »
  • Very cool nature center. So many interesting exhibits and they offer public programs that are posted on a whiteboard as you walk in. They even have a few turtles and frogs to look at. Great place for all ages. Clean bathrooms and a water refill station inside. The gift shop has some cute stuff in it.
  • Small but enjoyable. The real reason for going is the beautiful trails that weave in and out of the lush forests and along the beautiful saint Lawrence river. You could spend an entire day on the trails or split up your time and enjoy the entire wellesley island star park. Across the bay from the nature center is more camping, playgrounds, marina and a beach.
