Kerry wood nature centre is absolutely lovely and the staff there are friendly and welcoming- the pathways are easy to navigate and offer restful nature interaction and exploration- the path with the higher walls and windows for viewing nature will be a fun discovery for young and old alike- and the harmony gardens are fun for all ages too...

I go there mostly to photograph the great variety of bird that make it their home. The trails are not very diffacult and there are plenty of spots to stop and enjoy nature.

Paved trails and some natural ones. Scenic ponds, bridges to cross and and picnic areas make this a nice place to spend an afternoon. Get a little exercise, have a picnic lunch. Comes with playgrounds for the kiddies too.

First stop by the centre and explore. Then leave the building and start your journey through the forest and wetlands areas. Breathtaking scenery around every bend. Great short walk/hike for the kids and parents who are not ready to tackle a mountain. Teeming with wildlife and interesting birds. You will not be disappointed!

We go here often with the grandkids or just ourselves. It is always a nice and quiet, relaxing place to visit. Take a stroll through the woods or check out the display on the inside. There is often an art show going on if you are interested in that...check ahead! Would recommend for all ages!

Great place to take the family for a nature walk or spend some time in their outdoor music park. You would be surprised how fun a pipe and flipflop can be.

Red deer can boast about having a great nature get away right in the Center of the city. The trails are beatififul, scenic, and exercise stimulating. You get a good workout at the same time as checking for a glimpse of wildlife. The nature centre building is a great place to take children and visiting seniors. New natural playground is... More

Just spend some time here walking around the grounds. I love it here. So peaceful. They have just installed a music park for the kids here and my 2 year old niece absolutely loves it. She keeps asking to go back. Take the kids and teach them about the birds and wildlife. It's a great family outing place hidden in... More
