About Ernie Miller Park

 A 125-acre nature park consisting of a diverse range of habitats including tallgrass prairies, upland meadows, bottomland forest, a small stream, three miles of nature trails to explore, a picnic shelter, and nature center.
 Please note: due to the nature of the park, bicycles and pets are not allowed. 


Ernie Miller Nature Center

Ernie Miller Nature Park is home to the Ernie Miller Nature Center which provides a wide range of educational and nature based programs and experiences. The nature center is viewed by many as a laboratory of sorts for learning, understanding, and admiring nature. Patrons will discover more about plants, animals and history by visiting the center's exhibit gallery which features live animal displays and interactive exhibits.
 The nature center also features a 500 gallon aquarium showcasing native stream fish, a wildlife viewing room overlooking a water feature and bird feeders. The nature center also has a gift shop with books, treats, and other items for our nature enthusiasts.
Visitors will also view a range of birds from the center's lobby as they visit the feeders and discover more about the park's wildlife and history through exhibits and a diorama. For more about the nature center, visit the Ernie Miller Nature Center page.
