“The gateway to outdoor exploration”
The property features 225 acres of woodlands and wetlands with over 4 miles of trails, including an ADA interpretive trail and connections to the North Oconee River Greenway and Cook's Trail. The SPLOST-funded Education & Visitor Center includes live reptiles, amphibians, marine and freshwater aquariums, interactive natural history exhibits, and an incredible resource library, all housed in an eco-friendly building. There is also a circa 1815 log house and several wildlife observation areas on site. Sandy Creek Nature Center is a regional leader in environmental education. Walk-in visitors can enjoy our trails and natural history exhibits. Programs are available for families, school groups, scout troops, homeschoolers, and other groups. Public programming is offered for a variety of ages and on a wide range of topics. We also operate a 7-week American Camp Association- accredited day camp each summer.
We wanted to find somewhere nice to go on walks with our pups besides around our apartment complex and this is totally the place to do it! You don't have to pay for entrance or parking and it is dog friendly! We went down the first trail we came to and then branched off into others and we found a beautiful area with a creek flowing through. (I didn't bring my phone this time so no pics but will upload when we go back)
