So I originally gave this a 4 star review, but I've edited it with a catch. While the center is wonderful, the staff friendly, and the gardens and trails top notch I do have an issue that hurt my review. My daughter is reptile obsessed and wanted a reptile themed party at Churchville. I called for 2 weeks to set up this party, which they offer in their brochure, but never received a call back and was given the run around about when the director would be available. It was very disappointing to say the least. So the trails, garden, etc are 4 stars, the center and it's staff get a 3 due to lack of helpfulness on a 6 year olds party. If anyone cares we did it at Silver Lake instead. It's as nice a park, with varied landscapes, and a wonderful center with a very helpful staff.

Nice staff and a great place to take children. Both stuffed animals and birds as well as live reptiles. A nice little playground and a garden add to everything. My only pet peeve is that I feel things could be labeled better. But truthfully, i feel that about every museum, aquarium, etc. I go to.

This place is beautiful and Serene such a calm and relaxing environment it is a wonderful place to go if you just want to relax and think and sit among the frogs.

Visited the Lenape Native American Village tour. My kids super loved it. All the guides are extremely courteous and friendly. Know a lot about the Native people of the region. A must for the entire family.

A really nice nature center with a lot of self-guided displays about local wildlife, history, foliage, and rocks. They also do parties, which we're considering (the big open spaces are great for parties, also, not pictured is an education room where they have summer camp). The trails are great year round, even in early March, we saw a family of deer, and a lot of birds, can't wait to see it in bloom. They have live reptiles and insects. They also have a butterfly house in summer, which I can't wait to see. It's not very large, not the fanciest, but it's a great place to take the kids for an hour or two.
