Oregon Ridge Nature Center

The Oregon Ridge Park, a 1,000+ acre park, is located in Cockeysville, Maryland. They have a "nature play area" playground at the nature center and two large conventional playgrounds at the Lodge area of the park. The lake will reopen in 2017 with a new rental pavilion and canoeing and kayaking - no swimming. From dawn-dusk you can hike their numerous trails any day of the week.

The Oregon Ridge Nature Center is open to the public Tuesday-Sunday and offers many interactive exhibits, weekend programs, summer camps and special events. You can also visit the nature center to look at their displays of live native animals as well as the extensive collection of taxidermy.

There is no entrance fee, but donations are always appreciated.

"Really enjoyed our first visit to Oregon Ridge. We took the kids to see how Maple syrup is "tapped" from the trees. That was really great. There was still snow on the ground so I probably didnt get as much as I would out of it if we could hike around more. Cant wait till our next visit there. "

"Our family just visited Oregon ridge for the first time this weekend to learn about making maple syrup. The program was well done and they were happy to answer any and all questions. The nature center itself was ok. Snakes, turtles and fish. A lot of stuffed animals. I like the Irvine Nature Center a bit better. The grounds look perfect for a walk, but a little too much snow this time around. Next visit."
