Martin Park is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Oklahoma City. It's really quiet and the stream running through the park is a bird magnet. We loved the turtles, birds, and 'wild' native vegetation. There can be a lot of school groups on the property, but that's kind of the point of a nature... More

It's so nice to go here and feel like you're out of the city for a couple hours. Our girl LOVES exploring here. The park isn't fantastic, but it doesn't have to be. There's plenty to do!

My son (4) and I go here about once a week during the week. We try and get here as soon as it opens because it gets crowded quickly (daycares in the summer), so that we can see wildlife near the streams. Last trip, we saw an owl and watched a deer for about 10 minutes. They have just put... More

This nature park is in the middle of a busy and well trafficked area in OKC. It has woods, open areas, streams and lots of deer, some coyotes,. and red fox.

This park has been around since I was a child. It's a great place to take the kids to burn off some energy. You will see lots of birds, prarie dogs, turtles, and there are lots of trails to explore.

My wife and I have frequented the park since before we were married. It is a great place to take your family. They just put in a brand new kids play area for the kids too small to hike all the trails. We see deer and other animals almost every time we go. There is a good trail for running... More

A great place to take kids to show them nature. We have gone here for casual hiking and bird watching. Miss the bird blinds.

nice oasis close to town. Nice walking and jogging trails. Pond where you can feed turtles (bring small bit dog food). Bridge over creek with huge carp below (they like the dog food as well). Small interpretive center.
