“Great for geocaching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

I love this little park. Discovered it just last year while geocaching and never realized how nice it was - lived here for 15 years. Great trails, nice for a day out to discover nature. And of course there are several caches to find if that is your thing.

“A fun place for young kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2010

The Walney visitor center has a few hands-on nature exhbitis, a gift shop, and a few live animals (turtles, snakes, etc.) In the surrounding Elleanor C. Lawrence park, you'll find hiking trails, a creek, and a pond. There's an old smokehouse and the ruins of an ice house, beehives, and a butterfly garden as well. The nature center is smaller and less impressive than Hidden Oaks, but the park as a whole has more to offer.
