The 40-acre park includes a Nature Center, jogging trail, park benches, two picnic shelters with tables, flowering gardens, an arboretum and a suspension bridge. The Ray Harral Nature Park is located off of Tucson Street (121st Street) and west of Lynn Lane behind Childers and Spring Creek schools.
A little of nature inside! Lizards, tarantula, tree frogs, quail, 60 gallon aquarium containing several species of fish, turtles and a real live rabbit to pet. Learn about honey bees and other animals with our hands-on exhibits.

Who was Ray Harral?
Ray Harral was the Assistant City Manager at the time of his death in 1984. Mr. Harral had a reputation of being committed to leisure activities and parks facilities. He helped design and develop the Indian Springs Sports Complex. Prior to becoming the ACM, he was a retired Highway Patrol Officer. The Nature Park was being developed when he died, so the City Council named it after him.
