“Under reno, but still fun.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013

It's under renovations right now, but the trailer is still fun and informative. There was a very loud grade 3 class when my family and I visited, but once they left, we got one on one service. Peg the Crow is still there (I was there over 14 years ago when Peg first came in), and a couple other critters. A few games for kids, and some informative brochures.

“Under Construction”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

I can't really give this one a very good review as some of the paths and buildings were under construction due to flooding. The actual Nature Centre really didn't have too much to offer as far as nature exhibits. Most of the staff basically ignored that you were even there.

“Good hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We didn't have time to do everything offered in this nature centre. The hike that we did was very enjoyable. The staff at the centre were friendly and helpful. I would visit this centre again. They are currently building a new interpretive centre - looks like it will be very nice. I would visit this area again to do more trails.

“An Interesting Area”

The view of the bridge was interesting. The volunteers were knowledgeable and very helpful. There were many other things to see in he area including the story of an historic coal mine.
