Location: Just outside the city limits. It is close enough to be reached without an out of the way drive.
Parking: Paved. There are also a few trees that lean over some parking places so you can park in the shade on hot days. Parking is free.
Admission: There is a cost. It is used to pay to maintain the facilities/park.
Facilities: Lovely nature museum. The focus is not "zoo" animals or "exotics" in the usual sense. The focus is on wildlife naturally occurring in the north DFW area. They are concerned with restoring the natural prairie, swamp lands and forested areas as they were before development. They are actively restoring a prairie and marsh lands. They have built easily accessible paths throughout (with many built of wide wood planks so easily navigated by stroller or wheelchair) and even over/through the marsh so you can walk "through" the water and look down into it. There are named/marked paths that have been mapped out with distance/length of path and appx. how long it will take to complete the path. These paths do intersect so you can end up seeing the entire park no matter which direction you go. They do have markers along the path as well to assist in navigation.
Take: Water, sunscreen and snacks
Time Needed: As short as you want but to truly experience the entire park takes at least an afternoon.
