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.

We spent some time inside exploring the exhibits and talking to the volunteer staff working there. They were very knowledgeable and kind enough to share their knowledge with us. The walk inside the gated area was nice. Many of the plants were dormant because of our winter visit, but loved the name tags, letting us know what trees and plants... More

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

Wonderful place for the family! This was a nice stroll in a garden of native plants that is along the river.

My husband and I visited Kerrville and Fredericksburg for our anniversary. We decided one evening to walk the river trail at the nature center. The trail is beautiful. They are in the process of renovating, so you can't walk an entire loop at this time, but we didn't mind turning and walking all the way back. You walk right along... More

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.
