Meadowside Nature Center in Rock Creek Regional Park
Rock Creek runs along the eastern side of Rockville, and one of the highlights of the regional park is the Meadowside Nature Center. The center has eight miles of nature trails as well Raptor Aviaries, where you can get a close look at the resident owls, hawks, and bald eagles. This part of Montgomery County was also an important stretch of the Underground Railroad, and docents lead educational walks that bring its history to life. The Nature Center has plenty to keep the attention of young visitors, from its Legacy of the People exhibit where they can learn about traditional games of the Eastern Woodland Indians to a cave that lets them see the world through a fish’s eyes, but there is something here for curious people of every age.
