This is a beautiful natural setting - there are several trails and you will see many different types of plants and animals. It is kept very natural so the trails are not always smooth but it is a beautiful place to visit. I live very close and we have walked these trails for years never tiring of the peace and... More

I didn't feel like a run today so I decided to take a walk here instead. Even though it is winter time it is still a beautiful and tranquil park. A little on the small side...we had to walk around three loops to make 1.5 miles, but would be perfect to walk the dogs or take small children.

We love to visit Ray Harrell Nature Park and see what kind of critters are there, each time. We have seen frogs, turtles, geese, spiders, hawks, cardinals, snakes, squirrels, and much more! We've been visiting since our boys were young in the mid-1980's.

What a wonderful asset to Broken Arrow to have this wonderful hiking trail system... right in the middle of town. You can make the trail so interesting by taking a different trail each time. I feel safe there, as it is right next to the Nature Center, a school, and several housing additions. Love to experience the different seasons and... More

A hidden treasure in South Broken Arrow. Wide wooded paths, easy walking. The nature center is amazing. Small but well done. Great place for a nature trek.

This nature park is a treasure, somewhat hidden behind a school. We have enjoyed many family walks on the nice trails in all seasons of the year and it has never been crowded. A very peaceful place to take a stroll through the trees. The gentleman working in the nature center is so friendly and informative. He always takes time... More

Very nice park with a focus on the natural. No swing sets or huge mown fields here. The park consists of an information center and a number of walking trails. Relatively isolated, but you have the same trouble as anywhere else. Kids don’t stay on the paths and trample the flora/fauna. Parents do nothing to keep kids from swing on... More

Very wooded and for the most part the trails are solid and in good shape. Peace and quiet, great excercise. No floral, all trees and greenery.

What a wonderful, peaceful place to go and it's in the city. I was very impressed with the trails, the flowers, the building and the man that works there. (He is very nice and informative.) There are many different trails and none disappoint. If you are looking for a little quiet time, this is the place to go.

this is a park behind Childer's school. It is a nice walk to see nature. Some parts are paved and there are more than one trail.
