You do not need to drive far to enjoy nature and beautiful walk. The display for all kind of birds and educational materials is excellent. I love it. It is lots of fun to go for walks with kids. Parking is plenty and never crowded

So peaceful. Lots of nature walks, several gazebos to just chill, and a giant pond to watch the birds and fish, and just forget the world. Nice museum, too, with very knowledgeable staff.

Great place to explore, watch birds, photograph beautiful flowers, or just relax. We saw an Osprey in its nest. There was a killjoy in its nest right on the trail. Very enjoyable place to visit.

Wonderful place to enjoy well laid out trails, plants, birds, wildlife. Watched an Osprey feeding it's young, perched on a nest high on a pole right beside the trail - fantastic. Visitor Center has lots of interactive exhibits for youngsters.

Great place to walk and enjoy the outdoors! The paths are clearly marked and lots of scenery to see. When we went they closed some of the travels to work on them which was fine but looking forward to exploring the rest of the park....More

This is a 600 acre park located south of Hillsboro on Hillsboro Highway. Here you can enjoy getting out into nature and watch several different species of birds. Ospreys are nesting right now which is a big hit with the kids!
