Secular Families: Effie Yeaw Nature Center

For families and outdoor enthusiasts: the Ancil Hoffman Park and Effie Yeaw Nature Center is the place to be!

There is an interpretive museum and stroller-friendly trails down to the river.

Let's meet to check out the interpretive center, then hike together down to the river. There we can take a break, have a snack, and give the kids a chance to throw the obligatory rocks into the water.

Sorry, Ancil Hoffman Park does not allow pets!

Parking

Five dollars per car to enter Ancil Hoffman Park. Must bring cash and exact change, as you must place the money in do it yourself box at the entrance with your plate number. (They do ticket, boy do they ticket!)

    I took a few pictures. Does anyone have an objection to posting them here?

      I think it'll be okay to post, and if anyone objects later we can remove the photos that they're in.

      Shoot, thanks for seeing that. I tried to call them Monday to ask but they were closed and then I forgot all about it. I will edit this event. No doggies after all!
