The park is open year round and provides 86 acres of beautiful forest, lakes, hiking trails and wildlife. Explore the rustic nature center and find new seasonal exhibits. Get up close to a snake, touch antlers, or count the rings on a tree. Experience the beauty of a 150 gallon freshwater aquarium with Missouri fish or peer into a 75 gallon turtle enclosure. The possibilities for adventure are endless.
