The natural growth and beautiful environment makes for a lovely walk. While a very basic display it is an enjoyable afternoon when you need a bit of a chance to relax.

This center was better than we had anticipated. The exhibits inside the center were informative and well done. Their award-winning green roof was amazing - along with views of the longest and highest railway bridges in N. America. After the inside exhibits, we enjoyed nature...More

Alas, the crow and the snake that the Centre used to keep have died, but there is an interesting toad in a reptilarium, and there are permanent and temporary exhibitions to see, and it is worth a trip upstairs to see the roof garden.

Went there for a blue bird meeting. Nice area to walk along the river bank in the cottonwoods and watch birds and other wildlife. Be sure to leash your dog.

This was a wonderful large hands on nature center with good educational opportunities. The staff were very helpful. There are numerous varying length walks here too - no dogs or bikes allowed. I saw plenty of wildlife. Most paths are stroller or wheelchair friendly, others...More

This amazing area has numerous walking paths, and the centre itself is quite the inspired building... Its spaciousness allows, encourages groups of children to discover, explore different aspects of nature. Don't forget to go up to the rooftop.

While this centre could benefit from more interactive areas in the building, we did learn a lot about snakes as we watched one about to shed its skin. It seemed light on the displays for younger children.

This facility is geared to children. There is a large space but not much in it. We enjoyed the bird calls exhibit and the whole eco-building. There are paths outside to explore.
