There was a time that I would visit the Nature Discovery Center every single morning after school drop off. We would walk down the Newcastle trail, visit the bunnies and stop by the playground.
Then my routine changed and I suddenly stopped going. AND apparently I missed some major renovations… because now the Nature Discovery Center a whole new place!
It’s not gigantic, but great for exploring nature with kids! (Or maybe the size is why we like it so much!)
BUT, NOW the park has been cleared out of all the invasive, non-native trees and shrubs, old sheds are gone… and, most importantly, people are there. When I visited on a weekday this week, kids were out with their class exploring the habitats and toddlers were busy on the playground.
And if you want to explore the trails and nature, each habitat has signs telling you where you are and what to find.
Also, the sidewalk has stamps of leaves and paw prints (which happens to be one of our favorite things at the Houston Zoo).
(The house has discovery rooms that are the same as before the renovation.)
