Reviewed By NayNWoody - Waynesville, United States

My wife and I took three hikes in the nature area some of the trails were mulched, some paved and others dirt. We could not believe the benches that were available and also places along the way with informational signing. So much to take in. We saw people riding their bicyles, hiking and walking plus all social distancing. Amazing to have this many parks and trails in a city like Columbia

Shelter Gardens

Reviewed By DavidD-Portland - Portland, United States

Shelter Gardens is a pleasant garden with a variety of plants. Very well signposted. We visited today, early November. Certainly April on would feature plenty of flowers. Nice to stroll around. The one room school house is a replica of the one in which the Missouri Farmers Association was founded in very early 1900’s. The MFA was the predecessor to Shelter.
