Hiking is the ultimate way to enjoy the outdoors and reduce stress.  

On Nature Exploration Hikes we will discover the plants and animals that inhabit the urban forest.  Hiking programs feature intensity levels ranging from Light (a leisurely stroll on mostly paved paths) to moderate, to vigorous. 

For all hiking programs we recommend wearing comfortable shoes or boots, and packing water and a light snack.

Know Before You Go

PlaygroundsSeba Playground

Seba Playground will be closed to reconstruct the current Seba Tot Lot into a playground for children of all ages. The new design will enlarge the toddler area by adding a custom spray shower, seating, and two new tot play units. Additional play spaces will also be added for 5 to 12 year olds, and will include a large accessible play unit, a second spray shower and seating area. These two play areas will be joined by 15 additional swings for both age groups. The site will also feature an accessible drinking fountain, attractive plantings, and a bicycle rack.
Anticipated Completion: Spring 2014
