“Love the Nature Preserve!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

What a great place to go for a free outing! It was a very relaxing place and the animals inside the nature preserve were awesome to look at. The trails were nice and clearly marked, but not too difficult to maneuver. If you are a beginner hiker, I definitely recommend these trails! I also loved that you can rent picnic areas for different events - they even have indoor areas you can rent out! Highly recommend!

“Great Place to Hike”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

I love hiking on the trails at Reedy Creek Nature Preserve. There is a bit of elevation in some spots (but not that bad) to get a good workout. Hiking boots are recommended since there are a lot of tree roots. At times the trail is narrow and winding and you must pay attention to your footing. There are also historic ruins called the Robinson House to visit while out hiking these trails. The nature center has indoor bathrooms for the public to use (really important before you hit the trails) and has a lot of information on the local wildlife, plants, and trees in the area. There are basketball courts and many picnic areas to be enjoyed, along with plenty of parking. In the photos posted, these were taken in winter (January 2013) and the sky was overcast and the trees bear. However, in the Summer and Fall it is absolutely gorgeous!

“Convene with Nature”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Really what could be wrong walking around a nature center and preserve. It's very nice to go back to a simplier time and explore what NC has to offer if we stop to smell the flowers and the lowlands.

“a nice place to visit and get outdoors”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

It is just pretty and nice place to go with the family, I really enjoyed being outdoors in this area and seeing the nature preserve in all its glory with the kids. This allows us to show a little bit of nature within city limits.

“It was ok, nothing special.”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

The park was ok, I didn't think it was anything special. The bathrooms were very dirty. Toilet did not flush, and the hand blower did not work.
