  • This park has alot to offer - the nature center was not open when we were there. Instead, we took a long walk - there are several well marked paths for walking or biking. Worth a visit.

  • Lots of great, accessible hiking for the whole family. Also very friendly towards anyone with mobility issues. Lots of opportunity to see large wild animals in a semi-free roaming habitat. Pro-tip...

  • Love going to the Nature Center. Especially with kids. It is such a great place to show and help explain the Nebraskan wildlife and creatures we have here. It allows them to explore and there are fun trails to walk and let them get energy out while they learn lol.
  • Possibly my favorite park in lincoln. Well kept trails and a great enclosure for bird viewing. Also a very educational of you take some time to read at the stops
  • A wonderful place to take a hike. Lots of room to wander. Highly recommended.
  • Nice park to get out and do some walking. Enjoyed seeing the bison that were there and a couple of owls too. The gals in the visitor center were very nice and helpful in showing us the trails and what to do. Wish some of the trails would say how long they are.
  • Very nice center. It is small, but lots of great information to engage with. The grounds are great with excellent trails and animals to spot too. Free is great too! There are many places to give a donation if you are able.
