Tamarack Nature Center

Only had a short amount of free time while in town for a wedding. This was a good choice. Very nice area. Friendly staff. Great way to spend a fall day

Well worth a visit, whether you live nearby or are visiting. Tamarack Nature Center offers many miles of hiking and skiing trails, a magnificent children's play area, and a fine park building. An accessible, paved hiking trail offers the opportunity to experience a central part of the nature area. Other trails take one through bogs, woods, fields and hills. Part of the nature area is a bit too close to the I-35 freeway, but most of the trails offer a sense of serenity. I have been coming here for 30 years, and have enjoyed the focus on simple nature all along. Highly recommended.

I loved visiting the nature center with my two children. They have a log are where the kids can play on logs and with sticks, a garden area where kids and adults can help maintain the garden, composting, pulling weeds, and even try a fresh grown berry that they pick.

From the garden they have a stream that runs through for kids to play in and a sandbox with a water feature. Rocks for climbing with caves to explore. Check the hours for the discovery garden before you go and bring extra clothes for the kids:)

If you are there when the discovery garden is closed the trails are beautiful and full of wildlife so either way it's a great place to visit and you can't beat the price of a donation!

My grandkids love Tamarack. Lots of interesting activities for families including learning about critters in the area, walking through the woods, rustic playground and urban garden.

You can walk at your own pace and see nature. It can be exhilarating. Sometimes sitting on a bench is the answer.
