We love Severson Dell's because it is a quiet place wheree no dogs are allowed. There are educational programs for children that have greatly enhanced my children's vocabulary. The paved trail allows access for those with disabilities and those who do not want muddy feet. You can see a pond, a creek, a forest, a prairie and a wetland all from the paved trail. There are also numbered posts that have QR codes on them. You can scan the QR code and learn about that specific area.

Really a great place! Quiet, lots to see & easy to navigate. NO DOGS is a bit of a bummer. Check out the kid's play area and education center too!

Well maintained area for hiking and outdoor recreation. Main building has nice bathrooms and some "hands on" items for kids.
