Good things come in little packages!

We love stopping here and taking a walk through the woods. We see a variety of birds, frogs and turtles! Inside the Nature Center is a nice big window to bird watch. They also have a large bunny you can pet and several other animals for you to enjoy. The gift shop has a nice selection of items. I bought a big fox shape puzzle for the grandkids. Very unique. There was no cost to visit here. The trails were in need of some trimming, but the place is very clean and inviting. This would be a good place for a young family to check out. Your child won't get tired out and neither will you.

Great spot for nature lovers and kids
Oct 2018 • Couples
My family visits Holland often and found this Nature Center not far from downtown when looking for something to do outside. The entire property looked fairly new to the neighborhood. The center offers bird watching, live local critters and stuffed ones also. Trails outside are not difficult at all and great for kids, some even handicapped accessible. This is a great stop that won’t take long, but will be great as the fall leaves change colors.

Nice Little Local Gem
Aug 2018 • Family
This isn't a large Nature Center, but our family always enjoys stopping by when we are on vacation in the area. Rescued owls, snakes, frogs, toads, turtles and more to see, as well as some nice short hikes. Never very crowded as I don't think many travelers are aware of this little gem.

Disappointed

There was no signs anywhere to tell you where to go, and when we found it, it was not at all what I expected.

If you enjoy a taste of nature, you'll enjoy De Graaf. it is only a couple miles West of downtown, and offers a very nice restful location for a taste of nature.

Nice place to get back to nature
Aug 2016 • Couples
The nature center building has some displays & educational activities for kids, a gift shop, and a few live animals (owls, snakes, turtles). There are several trails winding through a mostly wooded area, offering a chance to see some wildlife (mostly birds). We didn't really see much wildlife, but we kind of walked though in a hurry. One of trails is a boardwalk, so it is wheelchair accessible, although there are a fews small hills that may be difficult to manage.

The De Graaf Nature center is a really nice place, I am not sure how many acres it is, but it has a creek running through it, a pond and a variety of trails. It's a slice of heaven in the city!

Nice place to stop
Aug 2016 • Couples
The nature center has a viewing room, some live animals, activities for kids and a small gift shop. The trails are well marked and of various lengths. It is a bit marshy so expect some insects. There are benches and viewing decks along the trails. The self guided trail is all wood planked for easy walking. It is a well presented center with lots of information.

Great nature centre
Jun 2016 • Family
We didn't know what to expect but we were very pleasantly surprised. Indoors there is a viewing station and exhibits including live animals to keep the kids interested. Outside, the trails are well maintained mainly on boardwalks. Well worth a couple of hours of your time.
