  • El Dorado Nature Center is always a surprised. I was there yesterday, June 6, 2017, with my sister who was visiting from HI. She loves it because it is such a surprise in the midst of the urban sprawl...  more »
  • It's a very relaxing walk which you have the option of 1 or 2 miles. It's mostly shaded which is nice. Overall, really pleasant. The only thing you have to pay $7 on the weekend for parking.  more »
  • This is a wonderful place for long walks and a great place for an educational experience for kids and adults. A friendly and knowledgeable staff is on hand at the center which has lots of kid friendly...  more »

  • A lot of people go here to walk the trails for a relaxing workout. It's quiet and peaceful here. Good place for families to go. They gave a 2 mile trail, a 1 mile trail, and a quarter mile trail. There's also a small nature center building where you can see snakes, insects, and tarantulas. There's also real animal fur you can touch and deer antlers as well. Cool place.
  • I've always love going to this park since I was a kid. All I do is go for a walk on the nature center trails as well as relaxing at the fishing lakes. One of the greatest places as well as one of my favorite places I've been going to my whole life!
  • This place has a well marked 1 mile and 2 miles flat loop trails. You pass by a nice lake and there are benches along the way. There is also a short stroller friendly 1/4 mile loop sensory trail. A great place to experience some nature and take a walk. Parking is 5 USD during weekdays, but the entrance is free.
  • You can get up close to nature, I love to go and take photographs here, to use for later reference on artworks... :) and everyone is so nice!!
  • Well kept nature preserve. well worth the 5 bucks for parking for how well of shape they keep it. hummingbirds everywhere. very pretty and nice people around. Great start to the Cubs winning the world series!
