This was a nice stroll in a garden of native plants that is along the river. They have special activities for children. One of the volunteers was off-putting with her criticism of other sites in Kerrville, especially when we had just said that was what brought us to the area.

The grounds for the Nature Center are just beautiful in a Hill Country Texas way. Lots of things going on, great resource for information on local birds and butterflies. A great community gem.

I really enjoyed this nature center. They have so many of the native plants labeled. The trail is really easy to navigate and has places to sit and enjoy the scenery. Looking forward to bringing my old dog in her stroller next time! Wish they sold seeds for the different plants. Like the stem with 3 flowers.

So, when everything is closed in Kerrville before the sun goes down, you can take a relaxing walk along the river! Their nature center has a paved walkway near the Gaudalupe River (I think) that's nice. They have some beautiful trees there. Also, the ducks will follow you! It was nice.

This is a nice little free Nature Center but lacks real excitement. Displays are a 5 on a scale of 10. The walking trail by the Guadeloupe River does make a visit worthwhile.

By visiting in January, of course nothing was in bloom We could imagine that during the summer it would be very wonderful. They have a nice little gift shop. We are going to try and go again when the weather is better.

Not a huge center but the staff and very knowledgeable and patient with young children. My grandkids, ages 10 and 12 insist on visiting the center every time they are in Kerrville and never get tired of the exhibits.

The garden is great, very informative. Then be sure to walk through fence gate to a path down to the river. Cross the little bridge, see the view I've added, and enjoy a wonderful walk. I would suggest taking a picnic down to the river, there's tables there and a beautiful setting.

This was a very well designed 'park' and the locals should really take advantage of it - we did see quite a few people there walking (with and without their dogs) I saw quite a few critters (bream, fancy bird that I haven't ID'd yet and a super friendly squirrel (he thought we were going to feed him) Really nice...

Was impressed with the additions and improvements to the Center since my last visit a few years ago. The self tour is laid out well and the plants are labeled which made it possible to identify each Hill Country native plant. The Visitor Center has a nice variety of gift items for all ages and the staff were enthusiastic and... More
