McDowell Nature Center serves as the gateway to 1,132 acres of McDowell Nature Preserve, that protects mostly forested, rolling terrain along the banks of Lake Wylie. The Nature Center provides many educational programs on our natural ecology, and features live native animals, a discovery hall, and a gift shop. Visitors can stop and observe nature in action, enjoy a natural play area, and take self-guided tours for miles of hiking trails.
Different programs available at ParkandRec.com under McDowell Nature Center, plus walk-in Sunday Scavenger Hunts.
