Very brief 2.5 mile run with my daughter this afternoon. Great trails that were well maintained, they even allowed a bathroom break without charging admission. Barnes nature center is a great learning center and gives kids hands on experience with nature. I believe there are summer activities signups in the spring and beginning of summer.
Very small inside but the trails are so nice. At the end of one trail there was a worker who let the kids scoop the bottom of the pond. They learned about many creatures. They even got to touch a snake.
We only hiked the trails. They are nice, and get you into some interesting areas. Swampy, hillsides and other nice areas for flowers.
Awesome trails which circle the premesis. The nature centre is great for little kids and they sell bird seed last time I checked
Lots of information about native CT animals, live animals including owls, nice clean cool facility, beautiful trails.
