My family loves Tree Hill Nature Center. They have a great nature center with educational material for the young ones, 50 acres of walking/hiking trails, a butterfly exhibit (seasonal), goats, picnic tables, and more. Bring a sack lunch, a canteen of water, and spend a...More

It is in a bit of a bad part of town. But, once you arrive, you are taken away from all that. The staff does a decent job, but the overall feel of the place is outdated, overgrown and unkept. However, our 8 year old...More
