River Legacy Living Science Center

703 NW Green Oaks Blvd., Arlington, TX 76006 - United States





River Legacy Living Science Center is a 12,000 square-foot Nature Center adjacent to a 1,300-acre woodland park in Arlington, TX. The Nature Center features terrariums and aquariums with live native animals, interactive, engaging exhibits in our Discovery Room, nature trails, self-exploration stations and a gift shop. The Center also serves as an environmental educational hub providing nature programs, classes, workshops, events and festivals for all ages.


The Discovery Room features two large aquariums, engaging exhibits on the native ecosystem, and a 30-foot interactive screen where guests can virtually immerse themselves in woodland habitats and seasons, learn fun facts about wildlife, and play a variety of games - competing to be the top lizard in a push-up challenge; jumping as a high as a frog to catch dinner; or posing for a woodpecker selfie and MORE! The environmental stewardship area of the Discovery Room will inspire guests to take action to keep our waters clean, pick up litter and recycle.

Please note that the last Discovery Room admission is sold at 4:30 pm.
