Nature Center Renovation
Meadowside Nature Center and the Nature Play Space are undergoing renovations to incorporate new interactive and immersive exhibits. During this time, both the nature center and outdoor play space will remain closed to the public until late 2022.

Meadow Restoration
The meadow at Meadowside Nature Center has been selected for restoration. Restoration should not impact surrounding trails.

Parks staff manage and restore meadows to protect these natural habitats and ensure native plants, insects, birds, and mammals can flourish. If these areas are not managed, they would revert to forest or be overrun by non-native invasive plants, and eventually, native plants and animals would be eradicated from the area.
