My family and I visit KNC several times a year. The hiking trails are well maintained and offer enough mileage to spend most of the day, especially with children. The learning center is also nicely done and the staff is more than helpful if you have any questions.

Such a great place! Great place to take your kids or just the two of you. It's a little bit of a drive but it is well worth it. We make sure we go once or twice every year and it's always so nice

They have great little animal display including several Live snakes and other critters. Be sure to check out the walking path. It's beautiful all year round. They also have several predator birds for observation. In addition there is a working farm. Whereyou can sign up for share of the crop each summer

I'm so glad we stopped here. What a lovely place to get your nature fix. We hiked the woods and soaked up all the loveliness. If we lived in the area we would belong to the nature center as they have tons of programming for kids, adults and families. Inside the center, they also had an exhibit of Charlie Harper's... More

Enjoy hiking on trails and the interpretative center, Delano Homestead. Hike out to the Kalamazoo River or across North Westnedge over to the farm.

what a beautiful surrounding of nature all around you. The staff was ver friendly and very helpful! They are great with children and are always willing to answer questions. They have outside trials that you may walk and a building that you are able to go into and see some of the animals that they keep in the cages. They... More

This place has great trails for any age. Easy to walk around or get a little more intense with some longer trails. I like the displays in the center - great for kids. If you plan go a lot- I would recommend a membership. That way you will not have to pay every single time you go.

We went for an introduction to birding class. Great walk through the park, great guide and learned a lot. Will go back and just explore the paths etc.. this summer.

I like to go here just to walk the trails. I don't care for the exhibits but it is a beautiful property.
