We love it here. We have had an annual pass for 2 years. Worth it for us. We go almost weekly for a nice walk & exploration. My 7 year old loves to go see what animals we can see & say hello to all the ones in the nature center. She has had her last 2 birthdays there. My 15 year old nephew loves it so much he chose to volunteer. I love bringing my camera with me to do my nature photography as well. You never know what you will see each day. We are blessed to have Boyd Hill so conveniently close to us.
Beautiful place, we never thought it was so big. Is peaceful, perfect for a date, good for kids, great to have a perfect walk with all the family. The staff is really helpful and welcoming. We got there around 3 o'clock and we didn't ever notice that 3 hours pass by. Amazing time. Definitely we will come back.
