Looking for a bit of nature in the middle of the city? Nestled between the San Gabriel River and the 605 Freeway, El Dorado Nature Center is an oasis of natural habitat, offering visitors the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the urban environment.

The 105 acres that make up the Nature Center grounds provide sanctuary for animals and plant life. Two miles of dirt trails and a ¼ mile paved trail wind around two lakes, a stream and forested areas. At the entrance, cross over the wooden bridge that spans the lake and you'll find yourself on a small island that houses the Visitor Center, containing educational displays and a small gift shop offering environmentally themed books and gifts.

Learn more about our Entryway Improvement Project scheduled to begin construction in mid-2015. The concept plan will be presented on Wednesday, December 10 at 6pm at the Nature Center. Click here for details:
