What a beautiful Nature Center & gorgeous trails - well maintained & really wonderful. We spent a whole afternoon here. The Ranger in the Center was helpful, kind, & very knowledgeable. We are so overwhelmingly impressed with Ottawa County Parks. The paved trail is ADA friendly. Really, if you have not visited you are missing out on a wonderfully forested treasure. So impressed! Reminded us of the great Nature centers near the Rockies in Colorado. Yes - THAT nice. Thank you to the taxpayers who support the millages making their County Parks superb. What an excellent use of tax dollars at work. Lovely & really - GO! Get out in nature. Discover!
Great trails along Pigeon Creek. The Nature Center also has a ton of stuff for kids to do and explore. I love bringing my 5 years old here.
