there are too many 'improvements' going in. this is a nature park not a playground, go to Star and Stripes for that. But the trails are nice and easy walking, plenty of birds and other creatures moving about.

my son (3) loved seeing all the giant turtles and fish in the water. Some guy was throwing cat food into the water and the turtles and fish were in a frenzy. Some of the biggest turtles I've ever seen!

My kids ages, 7, 4, & 1 loved exploring at the Martin Park... the visitor's center has many educational exhibits that were hits with the kids. The bee keeping exhibit is fantastic to see the bees working busily. They have a nice playground- we didn't stop to play on it this trip but plan on going back! There's also a... More

You will never believe your in the middle of a huge City. This is such an escape from the rat race. Enjoy hikes & see all the wild life come out to greet you.

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

There is a lot of nature to explore! The nature center seems to have activities all throughout the year to experience! Knowledgable volunteers! Lots to do! Great picnic spots too!
