A 200 acre pocket of Douglas Fir, Ponderosa Pine and Big Leaf Maple in an otherwise office park dominated area make this park a great destination.
Many paths wander through the park and several habitat types that support a wide variety of birds such as Great Horned Owl, Pileated Woodpecker, Rufous Hummingbird and Winter Wren. Restrooms available and paved paths are wheelchair accessible.
How to Get There: From Hwy 26 take the Murray Rd. exit and go south on Murray to Millikan Blvd. (sign for Nature Park) and turn right. Follow Millikan over the RR tracks to the park on the right. From Canyon Rd
(Hwy 8) turn north on Millikan and look for the nature park on the left. 15655 SW Millikan Blvd.
