We very much enjoyed being at the Center. There were nice paths and most of all, a very informed park employee who leads morning tours. We didnt know about the tours in advance, so this was a very special treat. (Admission is free, w donations accepted,) I recommend a visit - and a donation!

My wife and I were looking for a place to walk while we were in McAllen Texas and went to the McAllen Nature Center. It was a wonderful place to go for a walk. There were plenty of paths to walk, a playground for children, and lots of wildlife and nature to see and explore. If you're looking for a place to enjoy a walk at whatever pace you walk at, I would recommend the McAllen Nature Center.

Trails with cactus, butterflies, friendly staff. My favorite part of this place was bird watching, blue jays, cardinals, and some others that i did not recognized but there was a bench right in front of their feeders that we sat on for at least an hour watching.

A little history lesson while walking a nice little park. Entry is free and I would recommend it to anyone even when it is a little hot outside.
