We came to see the raptors and decided to walk in the woods. The kids spent a while playing troll under the bridge. :).

Big park. Can walk for hours, albeit trails poorly marked and lack loops. Always enjoy the raptors!!

We had a beautiful Saturday afternoon learning about how maple syrup is made, from tapping the trees to tasting the end syrup product. The staff was able to share their knowledge with the children as well as the adults clearly and kept all interested.

The Carlisle reservation is a really nice metropark. Went for a church picnic, wasn't expecting such a clean and walkable park.

The walk is great for the little ones too. The spooky things don't happen till dark .The amount of time and energy that goes into making this happen is... More

Some nice trails and plenty of programs for the kids. There is usually an opportunity to see horses (at the Equestrian Center), or birds at the Visitor's Center.

I visited for the first time today and it won't be the last time! The nature center is great ~ lots to see and the Eagle Nest (replica) is amazing. Great raptor display, too. I hiked for hours and saw several snakes, lots of toads and frogs and of course, geese. I had an amazing visit. Too bad the staff... More
