Situated on 25 acres of land, Hidden Pond Nature Center and Park is an oasis of woodlands and wildlife. Undisturbed woodland, quiet trails, splashing streams and a tranquil pond are just a few of the reasons to visit. While not exactly in Burke, it is a mere tenths of a mile to this Springfield neighborhood haven. Take a look at the live animal exhibits in the nature center before heading out to the one-acre pond that is home to turtles, fish, frogs and many birds, among other animals.
I remember taking my own children to Hidden Pond Nature Center. We would hike the trails and check out nets and buckets to take down to the pond. It was fun to scoop stuff out and sift through to see what we had “caught”.
