Riverside Nature Center reviews
Short walk outside through the gardens. They, too, had lost a lot of plants and trees in the hard freeze all of TX experienced in February. Some were coming out very slowly though. more »
Very helpful staff. Very interesting walk. Nice place to spend time looking at the different plants native to Texas. more »
It is free to go there so the minimum you give should be five stars for that matter. Besides that, if you walk a little into it to the river, it is very beautiful.

While the park isn't that big, it shows quite some nature and there are many places a couple can sit and have a good cuddle time.
Great place to visit and check out the exhibits and nature walk with all plants and trees . There is also a small gift shop with some unique jewelry and t-shirt d
