Oklahoma City's Martin Park Nature Center provides outdoor adventure right in the heart of Oklahoma City. Nestled on 144 acres in the city's northwest side, the park is home to many species of animals, including birds, butterflies, squirrels, fox and reptiles.
Fortunate visitors may catch a glimpse of a deer, coyote, owl or armadillo. Your powers of observation, the season of the year and luck contribute to observing these animals in their natural habitat.
For the adventurous, 2.5 miles of gentle hiking trails curl through woods and grasslands of the park. Other trails are made of gravel and packed soil, and contain short stretches of moderate slopes and occasional steps. The trails make the perfect get-away for the casual nature observer or exerciser. Visitors in wheelchairs can access the park's playground and nature education center on supported gravel trails.
