The Cedar Ridge Nature Preserve is a scenic, rich in wildlife, slice of hill country.  Formerly the Dallas Nature Center, the preserve spans 600 acres between Mountain Creek Parkway and FM 1382, a short 20 minutes from downtown Dallas.  The natural habitat is jointly owned by the City of Dallas and Dallas County and features native trees, grasses, and wildflowers, displaying the natural beauty of the area.

The Cedar Ridge Nature Preserve offers a variety of amenities for visitors.  There are 9 miles of walking trails ranging from easy to difficult, providing the perfect experience for any hiker.  Bird watching is a popular activity year around, and the preserve is home to the rare black-capped Vireo as well as a wide variety of wildlife.  The center also features butterfly gardens and picnic areas.
