What an amazing facility! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit on a cold, cloudy afternoon in February. The birds are beautiful. The center is well staffed with friendly, helpful folks. The visitors center has an impressive display of fish, owls, snakes as well as a book collection and more. Educational and fun. We are fortunate to have a facility like this... More

This is a well designed nature center on the banks of the Chattahoochee river. There is much to see and well worth a visit.Inside the main building it is designed to be interactive for the kids to enjoy.

went for a new year family walking after went thru the kennesaw battle ground state park climbing. there is an admission req'd at $10/person,kind of surprize. the few trails are nice,weather are windy.sky lab are good for the kids but there are too few live exhibits.may not worth a second trip there with full charged admission.

We love it so much we became members! It's close by for us and its a great place to take the kids to burn energy and have a picnic. The butterfly garden in the summer is our favorite, but we love all the exhibits. Hoping the ice carving demonstrations return soon!

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.
