Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge reviews
This is a small museum, but we enjoyed the interactive exhibits inside, and the nature walk outside. We actually learned quite a few tricks about how simple composting can be while there as well! more »
Beautiful trails for all abilities. Turtle trail has a lot of good waterfowl and the nature center has some cool live animals for kids to see up close. more »
Highly recommend the nature center as the city does an amazing job maintaining the beauty of nature. The many hiking trails will keep you busy and entertained! I really appreciate the staff as they are very informative and passionate about nature.
Trails are well marked and the woods are beautiful. Picnic tables, canoeing, hiking and beautiful vista from the 12o million year old Caprock. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. I will go back again.
