The Metroparks Interpretive Department boasts 10 full-service interpretive facilities.
There are two farm centers, one at Kensington Metropark and the other at Wolcott Mill Metropark each showcase the sights, smells, and sounds of life on the farm. From Kensington’s Living History Village to Wolcott Mill’s milking barn and greenhouse, along with interacting with live animals, attending programs, booking a school field trip, hosting your birthday party and much more, your visit will not disappoint.
There are seven nature centers that offer guests an opportunity to explore exhibits from wildlife to habitats, enjoy hands-on activities, interact with animals, attend programs, book field trips, and much more. Nature Centers also provide information about the park’s nature trails, wildlife you can see while exploring the park and answer any questions you may have.
Interpretive Master Plans
Our staff are working to create Interpretive Master Plans for all of our Interpretive Centers. This process involves a series of public and staff engagement and input to create master plans that will help direct our Interpretive Centers as we seek to provide beneficial, meaningful, and informative experiences to all who visit.
The first of those master plans to be ready for public review is that of Wolcott Mill Metropark Farm and Historic Centers. This master plan is currently open for public review and comment before it is presented to our Board of Commissioners at their meeting on September 9, 2021. Comments should be sent to Jennifer Jaworski, Chief of Interpretive Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 1, 2021.
