We love Chat-Nat! Our family had season passes last year. But this year, after going for several years in a row, we decided not to renew. The place is great and they take care of a lot of animals that otherwise wouldn't make it, but generally, the Center doesn't change much. They do put on little gatherings and events, but... More

The nice woman at the visitor center in Alpharetta suggested this as a possbiity. There is a friendly staff, some interesting exhibits and some enjoyable and educational trails including a boardwalk along the edge of the river. They had a fun butterfly exhibit and some interesting birds including owls, hawks and bald eages. My one complaint is the fencing kept... More

A great family day out and fun for all, the park is spread out over a few hiking trails with animals on every walk. Also a good learning experience and good interaction with the butterflys in the butterfly enclosure. The staff are frendly and helpful.

The CNC and surrounding nature trails in the area are all great for casual walks. Only warning is that in some areas, there can be alot of foot traffic. However, if you walk more than 1/2 mile, it typically thins out enough to enjoy the peace and quite. Also, if you go on off times, then its alot better in... More

Brought my grandkids here and they loved it. They've been a few times before but were acting as excited as they probably were the first time. The day was hot, hot HOT, so we mostly stayed inside. The kids (both boys) love snakes and other crawly things and this place did not disappoint when it came to them seeing all... More

This is an overlooked nature center just off the Chattahoochee River. A great gem in Roswell with woodland and river trails. Rehabilitated animals are on site to view and the new visitor center is enjoyable for all ages. Be sure to view the film.

Spent few hours to walk around. Liked the butterflies experience. Indoor activities are not so good as outdoor ones though.

Great opportunity to get up close to many varieties of butterflies. This visit was during a very hot, humid weekend day. It was very busy and we opted not to wait with our toddler to feed the butterflies. We had done it in the past on a weekday, and she loved it! I would probably prefer to skip the festival... More

This place has lots to offer for kids and adults. Our 9 and 11 year old had a wonderful time exploring while hiking and getting close to nature. The bird brought some additional excitement and wonders. Next time we do a pick-nick.
