The Riverside Nature Center just keeps getting better and better. Inside you will find changing exhibits and outside, beautiful and well marked gardens of native plants. And you must take a walk along the Riverside Nature Trail that follows the Guadalupe River through Louis Hayes Park (all the way to Schreiner Park if you are a hiker!). Lots of wildlife... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this beautiful trail! If you come to Kerrville this is a must! After the trail we walked around the gardener area. All the plants were well labeled abd the lady inside was very helpful.

Lady gave great talk about the centre inside and then we walked around outside to look at the various plants, etc. That was followed by a long walk along the river which was lovely. The odd bench would be good though.

I recently built a home and wanted to landscape with native plants and trees. A friend suggested coming here for ideas, and it excelled. Everything is a native hill country variety, and you can see what you like. I got a good handle on what to plant. It's also a nice space just to visit, a true local gem.

All native "stuff". Very interesting, especially to recent transplants from different part of US. Remained fascinated throughout.
