  • This small park feels like you are out in the country but it is right outside of Harrisburg. It has a towpath and a boardwalk for walking and seeing nature.

  • You would not even know you were in a city, except for the far off sounds of cars. The park is so peaceful and serene. The trails are easy, especially the boardwalk by the water. There are some art...

  • This is a beautiful park! There is a trail to be found for all abilities. There are multiple bathroom locations. Lots of parking. Most of the trail has shade so it’s perfect for a hot summer day. The staff member at the nature center was very friendly and knowledgeable. If you love walking in nature definitely check this place out! Also everything is free to the public.💕
  • Small but very kid friendly! The interactive exhibits were very inviting and appealed to families. Some of the exhibits did not work, one had lights that were out, on others the phones didn’t work. There is a great nature viewing set of windows with binoculars. They overlook bird feeders and a nice area to watch. There was a lot of literature about the area and I was able to pick up a scavenger hunt for my classroom. It was a gloomy and rainy day but the outside looks very inviting. There is a boardwalk that goes around the property. The gift shop was well stocked and inviting. Although the bathrooms were accessible and the stalls were big enough for my walker, there were no benches throughout the museum. I had to cut my visit short because aside from the chairs at the bird watching window, there was no where to sit. That was disappointing.
