Explore the trails and boardwalks at Wildwood Park, located on the edge of Harrisburg. This nature sanctuary offers seven trail/boardwalk options located around a large lake, plenty of opportunities to see and observe birds and other wildlife, and abundant flora and fauna natural to our area, some endangered.

Be sure to stop by the Benjamin Olewine III Nature Center which offer exhibit areas for everyone to enjoy, including children who are welcome to check out nature from the inside out by climbing through a tree. The Center is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.
