  • We visited the center in our vacation last november the staff was so friendly and helpfull it was almost like having a privet tourguide they also had a wheelchair for me to use.. 
  • We went for the Electricritter light show. Not at all impressive. If you have teens or preteens, i promise you they will NOT enjoy this place, not much to see for them. 
  • Really enjoyed the nature center. Friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Had a wheel chair we could borrow so my daughter could go out on the trail. Kids activities. Very affordable cost.

  • I liked this little nature conservatory. The admission is really good, $5 for general and $4 for military/senior. The main conservatory has a few animals running loose and a separate butterfly garden inside. I didn't get to walk the full nature trail because it was 100° and I had my 6 year old daughter. It was well worth the price to visit and experience the local natural habitats and wildlife.
  • Excellent stop for road trips. We live several hours away but stop here to stretch our legs and see what's going on. Kevin is a great guide who is very knowledgeable and helpful.
  • Not too huge but just enough! The staff was soooo knowledgable and eager to to share their knowledge. It was like we paid for a guided tour!
  • I'm currently stationed at Sheppard AFB for tech training and decided to get off base and walk to Lucy Park. I didn't know that this place was there, but I'm glad I decided to check it out! The staff there are very friendly and are eager to tell you about the animals and plants. The greenhouse is absolutely beautiful, with butterflies and other wildlife roaming around (look out for the roadrunner and bullfrogs(s?)). The prairie dogs are hard to miss!
  • The staff are so enthusiastic and knowledgable about the animals. Well worth the the small entrance fee.
