Martin Park Nature Center Reviews
It is a very tranquil place. Even when it is crowded, it feels peaceful. The hikes are nice and good for all ages. The playground is very cute! more »
A pretty place for a walk with lots of level trails. I do wish they were a bit better signed. You are not going to wander off a trail but you don't always know which one you are on. A couple of signs.... more »
we live in the Oklahoma city area, and martin park nature center has been a favorite with my family (parents, and brothers- now my husband, kids, and I) for many many years. we love the far away feel of the hike, and that its right in the city. the buildings are fun and informative, my kids love watching the bees. we have seen lots of different bugs, snakes, birds and other wildlife out here while hiking. there is also a pavilion for having a sack lunch, and a cool playground, for getting those little extra bits of energy out before the drive home so the kids will sleep like angels in the car. I wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone who loves being out doors.
This is a really nice park, made fancier in recent years. It hides in a growing area. There are several connected trails/loops, allowing walks of varying lengths. I miss the old prairie-dog town that used to be in the middle. You can bring cat food to toss off the big bridge, and get lots of fish and turtle action. Progressively smaller fish can be found approaching/into the shallows, which vary in appearance, depending on tecent rains. Crayfish, water skimmers, tiny fish, and dragonflies populate the area. I've photographed deer from the lookout tower. Coming early increases the chance of spotting a harmless snake or bunny. Watch out for ticks, especially in the western field. Nice picnic pavilion, playground, and our kids loved the interactive exhibits in the building. Nice new lookout areas.
