The Nature Center is the City of Arvada’s environmental education facility. We offer many school and group programs to engage kids with nature. Using the nature trails, wetland areas and prairie ecosystems to explore, we connect thousands of kids with Arvada’s parks to better understand nature.

We also provide programs for everyone with our public programming, from toddlers to adults, to connect all ages in our community with the wonder of nature. From nature art to drop in discoveries to conservation presentations to family campfire series, you can find almost any nature topic. For quick answer, visit our Frequently Asked Questions.

July 2016--"Exactly as the name of this place suggests, it is Majestic. The views and the nature center issue in a tranquillity unmatched by other parks. The nature center holds classes for kids to learn about nature, wildlife and the environmental ecosystem that we live in. After classes the kids can play at the playground, around the open spaces or flower gardens that surround this place. Truly a great place to stop at within the city of Arvada."
