We have been to Martin Nature several times. We enjoy walking the trails, enjoying the wildlife and beauty. There are a few other bridges, several "look-outs" and a fascinating little nature building loaded with education for the young and old. If you haven't been, GO!

My favorite place for a nearby hike. If you go, leave your dog behind (no dogs allowed), there is lots of other wildlife including turtles, ducks, geese, and even a view-able beehive! Martin Nature Park has a lot of seasonal events for the kiddos. All of this for free!

Great place to take the kids or to contemplate life questions. Great walking and learning. Great photo opportunities. Look at the macro to have unique shots.

I love this place. One can wander the quiet trails and observe nature during any season. I especially love seeing Spring Creek where it meanders through the park. You can see many birds, deer, and other wildlife, as well as wild flowers and trees in abundance. It is a great place to take your family or go alone.

This hidden oasis right off of Memorial Rd. is a wonderful place for a walk any time of year. Fireflies are the stars right now, and even the most dedicated of the concrete jungle will be surprised how calming it's canopy can be (the trees).

This is right by Mercy Hospital complex. Quite a few nice hotels quite near, lots of very good eating places and a shopping district. Amazing this area has been preserved. I used to bring my son here when he was little (he's grown with his own kids now). We always had a fun time and very little $ required. A... More

The nature center is informative. The trails are short enough for kids to enjoy from about age 4. I have pushed a large wheeled stroller on the trials as well. There are usually lots of turtles, squirrels, prairie dogs, and fish to see.

This is a really lovely park in Oklahoma City with a great play area, ample shade, a forest where children can play and build forts from branches, several walking trails and an indoor nature center. The nature center is small, but air conditioned and has restrooms. The center has several animals inside and sometimes hosts educational events for families and... More

Martin Nature Park is is a wonderful place to see nature in Oklahoma City. It has several miles of trails all easily to walk. You might see a deer, carp or other fish and birds during your walk. My grandson and I are regulars.
