My daughter attended a one week day camp two summers ago. But last year her class spent half a school day exploring their nature path and exhibits. I was impressed with their staff and exhibits. If you have children who enjoy learning about nature this is a great visit.

I've been there with my bfather and 4year-old brother. All three of us liked this place very much. I liked mostly the pavilion with different stuff like dried bugs, shells. You can bring there anything interesting connected to nature and earn points for that. Afterwards you can exchange those points on different similar things, already located in this pavilion. Nice...

It was very hot and humid the day we visited but that didn't stop us from enjoying the grounds and seeing the nature exhibits. Great place to take kids to help them learn about some features of creation.

We came here with my family while looking for a park to just sit and relax. This place is great for relaxing, enjoying very serene environment and the opportunity to walk or hike the nature trails. The river and canoes and adventure and activity to an already awesome environment. We loved the opportunity and left having relaxed and refreshed.

The Nature Center is great for lots of reasons but I love to go for live music. And during the spring the plant sale if wonderful! A must visit for every family.

The greatest place for all age groups. I loved the hands on areas. The live exhibits are very well done. Make this a day excursion and bring your picnic.

Chattahoochee Nature Center is one of the hidden jewels of North Atlanta. If you like to hike or just get out in Nature you will love this place. If you are a nature photographer you will have countless opportunities for photos. The butterfly festival is fantastic. It allows you to get up close with many varieties of butterflies. The price...

I recently booked a custom canoe trip for a group of senior citizens. The guides, Alicia and Sam were fantastic! The trip was a first for many of the paddlers and everyone LOVED it. The nature center in and of itself is a fanastic local resource - stop by and check it out for yourself!

Great outdoor spot along the Chattahoochee River with native plants and flowers, rescued birds raptors, trails, canoeing, exhibits for all ages. There are also special events and summer camp for kids. I especially recommend it to people who are NOT necessarily outdoor enthusiasts so they can discover how wonderful it is!

The staff is great and the scenery is beautiful. A must see for nature lovers who like to walk whether fast or slow pace. The butterfly tents are great for kids to get up close with nature.
