Check it out: Transformation of Nature Discovery Center and Park to be revealed Saturday
The Nature Discovery Center, 7112 Newcastle Dr., will formally unveil the final phase of its major capital improvement plan from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday at a free event, Gateway to Nature: Experience Our Park Transformation.
After a brief ceremony, the center staff will lead a series of fun, family activities throughout the park highlighting the park’s four habitat zones now linked by a meandering path, an outdoor Critter Classroom, wetlands learning habitat; a redesigned pavilion area with a restroom and outdoor sinks and a revamped garden, plus improved Americans With Disabilities Act accessibility, parking, lighting, irrigation, planting of native plants, fencing and storage.
The big reveal of Bellaire’s signature nature preserve comes on the heels of the opening of Evelyn’s Park, a five-acre green space designed as a community events center.
