“Raptors and Reptiles and Canoes, Oh My!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I recently booked a custom canoe trip for a group of senior citizens. The guides, Alicia and Sam were fantastic! The trip was a first for many of the paddlers and everyone LOVED it. The nature center in and of itself is a fanastic local resource - stop by and check it out for yourself!

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Great outdoor spot along the Chattahoochee River with native plants and flowers, rescued birds raptors, trails, canoeing, exhibits for all ages. There are also special events and summer camp for kids. I especially recommend it to people who are NOT necessarily outdoor enthusiasts so they can discover how wonderful it is!

The staff is great and the scenery is beautiful. A must see for nature lovers who like to walk whether fast or slow pace. The butterfly tents are great for kids to get up close with nature.

“My children love this place!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

A great place for the price. Plenty to do. My elementary age kids frequently ask when we will go back and we've already been a couple of times. My favorite is the walk on the boardwalk and their favorite is the indoor aquarium and things to do and look at. Also appropriate for very young children. Very highly recommend!

“If you love the outdoor, this is for you”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

If you love to live outdoor, owned a dog and like to run, this is the perfect spot where to go if live, or happen to be in the Roswell Area. I did live along the Chattahoochee River for many years and enjoyed this area very much. Come and see for yourself! Many attractions for adults and children: natures trails, outdoor activities and canoes.
