The Finch Hollow Nature Center is a great place for people of all places, however one thing that is great is that the physical center itself has museum interpretation geared towards kids. My kids always ask to go inside before we hit the trails. In back there is a meadow and a forest ecosystem, as well as a small pond, which is currently flooded. I would recommend insect repellent.

It's a wonderful place for school aged children (6-12), to learn about the nature surrounding them. It's a "hands on" museum and kids love it!!

Quiet, gorgeous views, had the place to ourselves. Not an expansive set of trails, short hike, but well kept and pleasant.
