  • Just a great time with my grandson showing him all the animals in the display. The walk on the trails during fall is beautiful!  more »
  • Nixon Park Nature Center is an ideal family attraction in York County, and it's not too far from the actual city. There are adult and child accommodations for visitors.  more »

  • I went to Nixon Park often during my childhood and these days I take my own children or sometimes go alone to take a hike. I've never had a bad experience there. It's collection of mounted animals from around the world is second to none. Definitely worth a stop.
  • Live reptiles, a small gift shop, a library full of nature books, a stuffed passenger pigeon, rooms full of taxidermied animals from around the world. It's got a lot for a small place. Oh! Almost forgot the best part. In the winter there back window overlooks several bird feeders which one can see a multitude of birds happily feeding. It's a joy.
