  • Nice place to visit with the kids. Mother Nature. Nice place for a walk. Educational. Note: The school s will bring kids for day field trips, so sometimes it gets busy.  more »

  • Such a great gem! The play area for kids is really fun, though the rock area gets very hot in the summer. Thank goodness for the stream!! Their programs are great, and the volunteers are always helpful. Don't forget to go in the building!
  • I went there for a birthday party and it is a cool nature center. They do nature walks with the kids, arts and crafts, and they even get to hold a turtle! It was fun. I would definitely bring my child back.
  • Love,love,love Tamarack Nature Center!!! If you have little ones, there is nothing better than the play area near the parking lot side of the park. They can climb, run, build with long sticks. They have special events like Maple sugar making, evening snow shoeing, etc. This is such a beautiful nature preserve. Walking around the big loop takes about an hour at a good pace. They have a building with classrooms, and bathrooms. Nice place to have a picnic too, as they have several picnic tables.
  • Fun for all ages. Trails appear to be open year round. The wildlife on display is a favorite for my son. Staff are friendly. They offer different activities throughout the year.
  • A great local park to take the family. Plenty of parking and plenty of things to do. The nature center is a good place to meet up if folks want to do their own thing. Fun sand and water area for the kids. Trails for all ages both for some exercise or just a stroll
