Sandy Creek Nature Center reviews
Very cute interactive museum and nice interactive boardwalk. Worth a stop especially with young kids. We didn’t get to do the other trail but had a lot more and in the process of building a cool play.... more »
I love to hike here. You can go walk all the way to Sandy Creek Park. After a rain, it's nice to walk the long paved trail instead of the muddy ones. more »
Very cool place! The kids really enjoy it! There are many cool things to do at the Nature Center. They have a little educational hike that you can take the kids on and many little educational stations for them to learn about the different regions of Georgia. My kids went here as a part a field trip for a summer camp, but I think it would even be fun to come to when its just you and your kids!
Sandy creek nature center is very appreciated and loved by our family. This is such a wonderful place for kids. Always so clean, and nice employees and volunteers. Thank you for all that you do.
