  • Fun and educational. Great to walk around the park or the nature center exhibits.
  • Great activity for a day trip. Hiking trails are great. The nature center is perfect for little ones.
  • A great place to walk!The property features 225 acres of woodlands and wetlands with over 4 miles of trails, including an ADA interpretive trail and connections to the North Oconee River Greenway and Cook's Trail.
  • This is such a nice little educational place for kids! The trails around it are lovely too :) The lady Rhonda, at the front desk in the mornings is not particularly friendly, but Michelle is awesome! If your young child (3 to 7 maybe) likes science and nature, come here and play!
  • Great place for children and adults! Nature walks are awesome.
