Growing center especially neat @ the Holiday season ! Staff extremely helpful and kind to visitors of all ages! Family friendly and they treasure the community
Every trip I've made to Riverbend is better than the last one! The docents and employees are knowledgeable and friendly. Very eager to share their excitement of such a neat place. If you are lucky a butterfly will land on your shoulder! My grandkids are still talking about it!
I took my 3 boys' ages 5, 7, and 9 in August about 2 hours before closing time for the nature center. At first glance the center seems bland. We were the only visitors.

The nature walk was really nice too. We saw several animal tracks and lots of grasshoppers! I highly recommend this... More
My wife and I visited in an effort to find something to do in Wichita Falls. The outdoor nature area was more or less a wooded area with a trail to walk and enjoy being "secluded". The indoor conservation building was rather plain but did have a few interesting animals to look at. Overall, I believe we spent maybe 45... More
