Awesome Activities at Paradise Creek Nature Park!

Discover an Urban Oasis...
Experience an Urban Ecosystem Coming Alive

This 40-acre waterfront park is teaching generations what it takes to bring back the health of an urban river, once presumed dead. Two miles of trails lead you through an urban forest under revitalization, 11 acres representing the largest restored wetland in the area that's open for public paddles, and past industries doing their part to restore the Elizabeth. Unlike any park anywhere, Paradise Creek Nature Park is a national model for urban river restoration, showing how industry, nature, and art can co-exist in harmony.
