  • Sandy Creek features trails, a lake, canoeing, and various water activities throughout the summer. The Nature Center is a great place for kids to learn about some of the wildlife.  more »

  • Should make the sign clearer that dogs are not allowed on the beach area. Since this is the only place they CANNOT GO it should be made clear on signs. And if you kick someone out of the only place they wanted to go which was the beach area to swim. Is losing 4 dollars to 2 18 year olds worth losing customers over. REALLY $4.00
  • Nice place to take kids for learning experience and fun! It's also free so I loved that! Went on hike down the trails so that was very cool adventure for all of us.
  • Great place for family walks but only part is suitable for strollers. Several geocaches also along the trails.
  • The nature center is really cool if just a little small and the walking trails are nice.
  • Came here for my little brothers birthday. Great nature center for little kid's birthdays.
