Our driveway improvements began on February 15. The Nature Center is open during driveway construction, but visitors will need to use the temporary access road at 5321 Roberts Drive (the old baseball field entry).
We will be pouring concrete for the foundation and footings of the North Woods Pavilion on Monday, February 19 (weather permitting).
Thanks for your patience as we improve your park.
Construction on the new Austin Elementary school continues as DCSS prepares the site for the build. As part of their build out, construction work on the Nature Center driveway will most likely occur next week, unless there is not a dry day to begin. Once this occurs, the main driveway to the Nature Center will be closed and all cars will have to come in through the former baseball field entry and drive across on a temporary road to the Nature Center. As soon as this occurs, we will let you know.

Temporary road leading to the Nature Center
With construction on our driveway getting ready to begin, some of the current trail access is blocked. To get to the Nature Center education building, the meadow, and back trails, it is probably easiest to park in our main lot in front of the education building and begin your explorations from there.
