  • BNC is one of my favorite places in Silver Spring. The nature center has a few animals that the kids love looking at, some exhibits, an outdoor play area made of natural materials, a pond, and some nice hiking trails. I love taking the kids to the nature center for a little while and then taking them on a hike.
  • Very nice family friendly oriented area. Easily walkable to brookside gardens and other parts of the park
  • Great place to take young kids on a rainy day. Fantastic nature oriented programs!
  • It exudes the embodiment of nature, plus the people there are great too!
  • You will love to walk in there and listen to the different sounds of of birds singing.
