Reedy Creek Nature Center and Preserve
The park seems nice. The Nature Center was very boring for my young kids. It's appropriate for children around 10. When we got here we saw the playground is closed for construction and repairs. I wish they had put that on the website!
As a Charlotte native, Ive had the pleasure of to Reedy Creek since I was a child, and now I bring my kids. Its well maintained and the trails are an absolute blast. Youll encounter all sorts of wildlife from butterflies, deer, box turtles and other amphibians and reptiles that live in the lake.
I love this place. Trails are well maintained and never overcrowded. If my dogs could talk they would tell you this is their favorite place in Charlotte.
Great park! There is so much to do. We were only there a few hours and we were able to see a ton of wildlife. The staff at the Nature Center was very helpful. Your child can rent out an explorer backpack or fishing pole for free. The playground was amazing for the kids after hiking the trails. It will not disappoint.
I LOVE this place. I run here on a regular basis, but sometimes come to hang my hammock by the lakes, play sports, watch cricket or run around on the NFL Play360 obstacle course. There is so much to do. I don't have a dog, but the dog park is almost always busy. There are multiple playgrounds and picnic shelters and a wonderful little nature center. I call this my little escape from the city because you really can imagine you're out of the bustle of city life while you're there. So, if you just need to get away, or you're planning a family reunion or birthday party, I highly recommend it!
