Easy to walk paths through forest that provided shade on a very hot day. Lots of small wild life and birds to see. We found directions along the way which gave us an idea of where we were and the numerous choices of paths we could take. The directional maps were a little confusing and we got lost for a... More

The natural diversity at this park is great for it's size. Good place for families to come hike and see all types of wildlife and plants. The park is well kept and they keep as much of it as natural as possible. I would return to this park with my family or a group of kids. I have also visited... More

Whenever my 5 year old grandson comes to grandpa's house, we ask him where he would like to go. We always end up at the Nature Center. The trails are easy, well maintained, and the area is a great get-away for a short hike. Grandpa and grandson absolutely love the place.

Have been to Martin Park at all times of the year and have taken all of the trails. The trails are well maintained and the personnel in the park are very helpful. Winter is a great time to see deer particularly after a snow, but deer may be seen any time of year. Children love the spring creek area and... More

This is a fun family outing spot that's suitable for everyone from pre-school aged kids to Grandparents. The park featured four trails of varying length and diverse landscape. The park is great for viewing wildlife (birds, fish, deer & groundhogs) and the learning center is a favorite for the kids. The park is also a great location for photographers, especially... More

What a beautiful place this is, it's very hidden in such a busy part of the city you will never know it's there unless someone told you about it or you happened to pass by the park entrance. It's a great place to reconnect with nature on a hiking trail or let your little ones play on their very nice... More

Lovely little nature park in the heart of the city. We love to go walking/hiking in the morning when the deer are out and about. There's a nice small creek that runs through the park and allows the kiddos to hop from rock to rock if they'd like. The nature center is also fun for kids and a good place... More

This is a wonderful place to visit with kids, starting with the turtles in the water below the cross-over bidge. We loved seeing the active beehive and all of the other nature exhibits. They also have special activities on certain days if you check their website beforehand. Their short hiking trail is a also great & we love playing in... More

This is a great place to go if you want to get away from the city and walk some trails. I have seen many deer here. I haven't been in the actual building to look around in years except to use restrooms. There is also a children's playground that my daughter enjoys.
