“nature hiking in the midst of Oklahoma city!”
Open 51 weeks a year, Oklahoma City's Martin Park Nature Center provides outdoor adventure right in the heart of Oklahoma City. Nestled on 144 acres in the city's northwest side, the park is home to many species of animals, including birds, butterflies, squirrels, fox and reptiles.Fortunate visitors may catch a glimpse of a deer, coyote, owl or armadillo. Your powers of observation, the season of the year and luck contribute to observing these animals in their natural habitat.For the adventurous, 2.5 miles of gentle hiking trails curl through woods and grasslands of the park. Other trails are made of gravel and packed soil, and contain short stretches of moderate slopes and occasional steps. The trails make the perfect get-away for the casual nature observer or exerciser. Visitors in wheelchairs can access the park's playground and nature education center on supported gravel trails. Trail maps and signs are available for visitors who wish to explore the trails on their own during park hours.In addition to the outdoor grounds, Martin Park Nature Center houses a hands-on education center showcasing a variety of reptile and insect species, as well as an nature education library. School, home school and scout groups are welcome to visit the center for their meetings and classes.
Never thought I'd have to check to see if a park allowed pets. This one doesn't FYI
This is a great place to unwind and observe wildlife. The staff is very knowledgeable and ready to teach you anything you’d like to know. Pets are NOT allowed because a lot of people don’t pick up after them and some wildlife could get sick from this. No camping but it’s a fun place for a day trip. Perfect for kids, with a really great park and nature center. Make sure you pack your bug spray, the ticks are pretty bad out there.
Thumbs down! So many regulations and pets are not allowed.
no mention of camping on their website.
