A mix of old growth forest and newer plantings, Caldwell Nature Preserve is home to a variety of wildlife including reptiles, amphibians and mammals. It also features a Nature Center, an amphitheater and 3.5 miles of nature trails, including a level-paved trail that makes it possible for wheelchair users to go into the woods, see the flowers and hear the birds.
The Spray Park at Caldwell Playground on North Bend Road opens in the spring. The hours are 10 to 9pm, 7 days a week. Come out and enjoy the fun and splash!
