I grew up close to this park and it was where we played baseball and fished back then. If you have kids this is a great place to bring them. They have a display area inside that has some local critters to look at and some educational information. Trails are easy and this is a neat area to explore.

What a great way to spend the day. The facility was great, and the staff was fun and there is certainly plenty to look at.

We've been traveling to Joplin for a yearly golf tournament for more than 20 years and this is the first time I've heard of Wildcat Glades. If you like to walk/hike - don't miss it.

The facility was very nice. The staff was friendly and offered to help with any questions that you have. The grounds were nice and wild life abounded.

We found Wildcat Glades very interesting. The nature Center is surrounded by plants common to the area and has a roof that has plants on it to insulate the building. There is a very large aquarium inside that holds the fish that can be found in the little stream/river that runs through the Center. The person at the desk was very helpful and knowledgeable. There are viewing areas where one can sit and watch birds coming to the feeders as well as hiking/nature trails.
