Decent place to walk the dog. Shaded, moderately hilly natural trails. Prone to being muddy, so consider recent rainfall if that's an issue for you. Trail maps could be clearer in orientation and distance.

I wish we would have find this place sooner! My boys (4&6) loved it! If you go when the visitors center is open, there are aquariums inside with various reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids! You may even be able to pet Pebbles, the 15yr old tortoise! Outside there are sucks, bunnies, and chickens. They have a butterfly garden and great hiking trails for little ones. They offer many programs that we are just learning about. We will be back!

Thank you for offering this place to the public. Came with another mom and our 6 kids all 4 and under. Everyone had a great time and the staff was friendly, informative and helpful.

We were visiting Duluth and needed somewhere to let the kids get out some energy. We passed by the nature preserve and decided to check it out. So glad we did! Easy trails, beautiful creek, friendly staff. I plan to take my kids back for one of the Boy Scout days.
