Back to Nature

You don't need to travel far to get in touch with nature's glory. Martin Park Nature Center & Trail is one of Oklahoma City's greatest treasures, a crossroads of wildlife, recreation and education. Located just west of Mercy Hospital at 5000 W. Memorial Road, this 144-acre park has three hiking trails, a bird observation wall, a watchtower and a hands-on nature museum. Hikers who set out on the 3.5 miles of trails will go through woodlands and past grasslands, around a large pond and along a spring creek. Keep your eyes peeled and you might just glimpse a deer, coyote or cottontail rabbit.
