Reedy Creek Nature Center and Preserve
The park is pretty large and has several different activities including a dog park, two separate play areas for kids, one built by the Panthers to be a mini workout area and the other in the back of the park by the nature center. Hiking trails connect throughout the park and are nice easy trails. Bathrooms are also at the nature center and other picnic areas.
Great place to let children learn something about nature and play on natural looking playground equipment to burn some energy!
We were looking foe a relatively easy hike around the Charlotte area that would include great views of nature and maybe some local history. The Reedy Creek Nature Center was a great place to visit, as the hike was very leisurely and enjoyable. At the Nature Center the crew member was very helpful with suggestions on which trails to take and the distances. The trails are relatively flat with a few roots and rocks, and very easy climbs. Several bridges take you over creek areas and provide great photo opportunities. All trails were clearly marked and easy to follow.
Great place to go hiking. The nature center is very nice the kids can see some snakes and turtles inside all four free. Trails are pretty easy to hike so you can take the kids. Playgrounds and picnic tables every where.
Cant believe this hidden gem is only 15 min away from Noda! We have never heard of anyone talk about this place but decided to check it out anyway. Its out of the center part of the city, so we enjoyed that it wasnt overcrowded like many parks in Charlotte. Loved that it has multiple trail options and that parking was easy and safe. We chose to hike different trails leading to the Robinson Rock Ruins and loved it. Saw some beautiful scenes along the way. Highly recommend!
