Great place to explore and think. It's amazing to gave this forest in the city. Lots of wildlife and family friendly. Check their website for special kids exhibits. I've also used this place for business retreats and community meetings.

This is a lovely park with loads of well established hiking trails through hills on the banks of the Missouri River. Great variety of trees, birds, and "critters". The trails are just challenging enough. There is also a section making nature accessible to small children and boardwalk trails for wheelchair access. At the nature center there are a number of eager volunteers prepared to help answer questions and explain things.

Great place that an association has worked so hard to preserve in the heart of Bellevue. Relaxing, pretty, fun. Take a jaunt in the forest and feel your cares melt away!

Though the temps were rather high and humidity as well, we enjoyed a short hike through this wilderness area. The wooden walkway is convenient for handicapped and families with children, but we prefered the rugged pathways of which there are still aplenty.
