  • We have driven by this park several times but this is the first time we made the effort stop. The entrance is a little difficult to spot as there is little warning of its approach. Once you enter afte...  more »
  • Visited this past Sunday morning with the family. The boardwalk path was a great length for my 4-year-old to walk herself and she got a kick at seeing the manatees at the mid-point on the river. There...  more »
  • Took my grand-children (ages 6 & 8) and it was a perfect get-away for a nature walk, activity room and a picnic lunch! Love this little get-away for the tranquility.  more »

  • Very cool! Not many people know about this place, never crowded. Extremely friendly and helpful man working in the office. I'm sorry I didn't catch his name. Interactive and education fun for kids in the nature center. Scavenger hunt available for kids. The most BEAUTIFUL and clean bathrooms I have EVER seen outside of fine dining. Not what you would expect out of a county Park. Very pleasant surprise! Thank you!
  • This is a really cool public park that doesn't cost anything to enter. It is a great place to bring your family especially if you have kids. They have a nature center with snakes and turtles and interactive things for the kids to do including art projects. They have really nice walking trails and a butterfly garden. It's an amazing 57 acre oasis that's hidden and cool. My children really loved it. We highly recommend it!
  • I visited this place on a chilly, sunny January day and there were very few people around. The grounds and trails are beautiful. It's quiet, natural and peaceful. There are two trails; one is a 3200' boardwalk and the other a 1200' mulch trail. Both are loops and are very enjoyable to stroll along. The staff was friendly and the little nature center was cute. At the same time, I couldn't help but feel a little melancholy while I was there. There are great little info signs posted around the trails ('watch for this animal', 'look for this tree', etc), but they are all old and faded and hard to read. The aforementioned nature center is cute and welcoming, but the displays are older and the exhibits are kind of tired. It definitely doesn't seem like it's anything the park staff is doing or not doing, but rather like the funding just isn't there to improve anything. And as pleasant as the actual park itself is, that fact makes me kind of sad. If I win the lottery, I'm donating a chunk of it to Secret Woods!
  • Exercise your legs and breathe that great outdoors fresh air by walking along the the two trails of Secret Woods Nature Center! If you keep quiet and listen closely you'll find interesting animals you'd either never seen before or have rarely seen before! Bring plenty of water, sunblock, and bug repellent! It's quite a trail!🐇
  • Beautiful walking trail. Lots of educational opportunities for the kids. Older folks will enjoy the serenity. No place for food or drink.
