River Bend Nature Center is just that. A small nature center. There is a fee for this but it is minimal and there is a military discount (as is there a military discount throughout Texas and Oklahoma). You walk into the gift shop area, then you make your way to a room with interaction. A display of bugs and butterflies and insects. They also have small reptiles on display. You make your way to an enclosed room that has multiple butterflies. Feel free to walk outdoors to a nature path. It is not that long and easy to manuver. River Bend Nature Center is located right over the border from Oklahoma on I-44. The day I went, there just happened to be a wedding that they were preparing for so I think most of the reptiles were out.

After you complete River Rend Nature Center, when you exit, turn left and you'll drive into Lucy Park (free). There is where you can access the waterfalls that you may see if you are heading south on I-44. This park offers a nice little creek with lillypads, I saw a crane. They also have a pool for the community (I would imagine this would be a

fee). A basketball court, all the needs of a city park. Within the park there is cement path and if you take it to the right, you will come to a waterfall. There are times when I drove I-44 and pass this waterfall with no water. So I would imagine they have a dam or it, perhaps, depends on the rainfall.
