  • Very relaxing park, the trails have shade from the trees, lots of mosquitoes you might want to take some bug repellent, or you can buy some there too.

Great way to spend the day with your family or nature loving friends, and don't forget to pet Spike, a terestial turtle
  • We took our 8 month old. And he loved all the butterflies. Suggest to take bug spray. Lots of bird, bugs, and petting turtle.
  • Really great! Saw tons of butterflies and a hummingbird!
  • It's all outdoors make sure you drink plenty of water and bring your walking shoes.
  • Best Nature Center in the RGV
