  • A most beautiful nature center. My sister's and I had a peaceful relaxing stroll through the winding trails leading from one incredible scene to another. BOXERWOOD is a special place for all to enjoy. Beautiful experience. Highly recommended! Thank you to all who have worked hard to make Boxerwood Nature Center and Woodland Gardens such a unique and inspiring enchanted place to visit.
  • Two adults and two teens in our family went here and had fun like we were little again. Awesome memories running around in the rain. What a beautiful place to visit again and again.
  • Boxerwood was a little hard to find without help from my gps, but I definitely feel like visiting was worth it. I came here early in spring, so there weren't too many flowers, but I still enjoyed the paths. I especially liked the little fairy houses in the fairy forest. The experience I had at Boxerwood was nice peaceful afternoon of listening to birds and enjoying nature. I even got to see some deer! Since the park is free it really is worth a visit.
  • The best "park" around. Great for the whole family, or just for a quiet stroll
  • Peaceful trails, wetlands, and a kid park.
