This place was so cute and interesting. With not much to do in the area, we were excited to find this neat exhibit to spend some time.

We were looking for somewhere to kill some time on our way to the beach (waiting for our check-in time for our rental), and through trusty Trip Advisor, I saw that this place was less than a mile off the main road we were on. I am so glad we stopped! There is a river with "porch" swings facing the... More

Nature center is small, but has lots of snakes and other animals. Planetarium and the exhibits are interesting. Narrator did a great job explaining the constellations. Playground and train are great.

A very nice playground for toddlers! Small little zoo, a planetarium, and a cool hands on exhibit center for the little ones! Staff was super great with the kiddos! Would recommend for those on a budget!

Neuseway River park is a great place for the whole family. Its all free except a small fee for camping. You can check out kayaks, check browse the small zoo and a real planetarium. They also have stocked fish ponds. You can't get better than free.

My mother and I passed this little park on a detour to another destination and decided to stop to walk around. There's plenty to do for all who visit. A playground for the children,a small nature center,a planetarium, fishing, camping. There was even a small train reminiscent of the little train rides around old amusement parks. Bring a picnic basket... More

This is a small quaint park. It is geared for families with children and would be great for grandparents and grandchildren.

The Neuseway Nature Park is by far the best nature park I have ever been to. It has a great playground with picnic tables nearby. The train ride is fun. Good fishing spots and trails. The little indoor "zoo" is alright. They have a couple of animals but it has more snakes than anything. My son was more excited about... More

The grandkids love to visit the Naturepark. They love the animals--and koi pond, could spend hours in the explore area and even more time on the playground. it's not the most high tech or top exhibit in the world. Maybe what they like best is the adults in their lives playing with them. It's part of our summer visit ritual--always... More

When this first opened, I started taking my kids there. Now I take my grands, What's not to like? There's a train, the river, nature path, fossil collecting, touch tank, where you can hold a star fish or a crab, live reptiles, and so much more including a planetarium! And all free!!
