I have to admit we didn't get out of the car, as it was a really cold, blustery day in late winter. But, we drove through it to visit for the afternoon with friends who live on the edge of it; and via asking them about it, we would recommend it! Maybe we'll go back one day!

I found the hiking trails to be extensive, well labelled and very nice. One easy trail went around a pond and we saw countless bullfrogs and interesting butterflies/dragonflies. Other trails are connected by a series of wooden boardwalks. On the grounds there are a few pens where you can see injured owls/birds of prey that aren't able to be returned... More

Nice and quiet , we went during mild heat and after rain so many mosquitoes . We made the most of it and had fun . Next time we''ll plan our hike in cooler weather . Pack a lunch and eat at the table by the parking area after you hike .

I often take my granddaughter to see the turtules , frogs, snakes and owls in natural habitat. They have a nice simulation of nightime where you can hear all the sound of animals and insects while sitting peacefully in the dark yourself. We like to count turtles sunning themselves as we walk around the pond. Last time we saw a... More

It's a quaint little nature center, but it's seen better days. There were cobwebs on the exhibits, and overall could use a little more maintenance. The trails in back were nice, but not worth the cost of admission.

Very informative displays and the people are willing to explain more if needed. Worth going on a summer day with children.

One of my favorite spots. A great place to take your family. Young children to teens can find enjoyment with many activities here. The upcoming nighttime Halloween walk is fabulous and a must for families with children 8-12 and older children can enjoy it in groups. Remember to bring your own flashlight!

We were hoping for a much more elaborate nature center since we were visiting Mystic, CT. This place was very underwhelming. Even though it was only $8/adult, it was expensive since we did not see much of anything. We merely looked at some stuffed animals and watched a 5 minute film about a meadow. We walked some trails, including the... More
