    We went to Shipley Nature Center as an outing with BSA. It is beautiful sanctuary and is such a soothing, relaxing place! I also think it makes a great place for school field trips!  more »

    Beautiful hidden treasure within Central Park. Wonderful display of native plants and demonstration gardens

    This is a small Nature Center with a loop trail around a small lake. There are trail guides that correspond to markers around the trail. The trail can flood during inclement weather as the Center is in a natural drainage basin so it is sometimes not possible to make the full loop. The Nature Center is tiny but has a good history of the Huntington Beach area including the mysterious cog stones that have been found throughout the area. Admission is free but the accept donations.

    Great place to explore nature with my toddler! The paths were just right for her and we used the critter counter sheet to guide our exploration.

    Shipley Nature is a beautiful place in Central Park. There are butterflies and birds flying all around, squirrels, bunny rabbits, insects and coyotes. Every summer there is a camp here called, Inside the Outdoors and it's amazing. If you have young kids, this is a great place for them to spend their summers.
