“Great birding opportunities.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Excellent combination of wetlands, bottomland, wooded and grass. Attracts lots of birds. Migratory waterbirds are common on the lakes in the area during the proper season.

“Lots of trails”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

This was a spontaneous stop for me, so wasn't wearing shoes appropriate for hiking (sandals). The visitor info center had some nice exhibits and maps of all of the trails. I walked a short one around one of the ponds and it was beautiful to be away from all of the daily noise. The docent at the desk warned that there are lots of ticks around, so take precautions. Planning to go back to really explore.

“Nature at it's best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

I love this place and it has often been my favorite place in Tulsa. It is great most of the year round. Maybe not so much in a hot summer. Enjoy a very peaceful walk down many trails. You can get a map from the center and hours are posted. I believe is is like from 8am to 5pm. You can get lost easily if new so make sure to follow a map. The ponds are cool and most the time I see deer or other wildlife.

“Beautiful regardless of the season.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

The Oxley Nature Center is one of our favorite outdoor places in NE OK. The trails are easy to walk and there is so much to see. In addition to the beautiful trees and plants, we see many different types of wildlife on every trip.

The visitor's center has some great, hands on exhibits and there is always a knowledgeable staff person available to answer any questions. They are great with children, too.

We have not attended any of the special programs they offer, but they look fantastic. One of these days we want to do one of the full moon guided walks.

Oxley Nature Center is definitely worth a visit.
