San-Lee Park Nature Center Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

HH Architecture celebrated the grand opening of the San-Lee Park Nature Center with state and local dignitaries, and a small crowd of parents, children, and visitors. The $1.9 million project will replace the previous Nature Center that burned down in December of 2014. HH Architecture worked with a team of consultants to design a new building that complimented the gorgeous surrounding San-Lee Park site. With large windows and views overlooking the lake, the Nature Education Center includes office space, rent-able multipurpose area, a classroom, and small animal exhibits. The exhibit space allows visitors to learn more about the animals who inhabit the surrounding 177+ acre park.

The park, located at 572 Pumping Station Road, offers hiking trails, a mountain bike trail, playground, picnic facilities, campgrounds, and two lakes for fishing and paddle boating. Visit the park’s website for additional information.
