River Legacy Living Science Center serves as the gateway to the adjacent River Legacy Park. Stop by here first to discover all about the plants and animals you may see in the park. The 12,000-square-foot Nature Center features The Discovery Room; native animal exhibits; traveling exhibits from mid-November to February; self-exploration stations; nature trails; a gift shop and occasional free Saturday programs and festivals. The Discovery Room features two large aquariums, all new engaging exhibits and a 30-foot interactive screen where guests can virtually immerse themselves in woodland habitats and seasons, learn fun facts about wildlife and play a variety of games – competing to be the top lizard in a push-up challenge; jumping as high as a frog to catch dinner; or posing for a woodpecker selfie and MORE. The Nature Center is open 9 am to 5 pm Mondays through Saturdays. Nature Center is free to visit; Discovery Room does have a nominal admission fee.
