Hours

COVID-19 UPDATE:In accordance with the Jefferson County Department of Health’s recent orders to close all non-essential services, the Turkey Creek Nature Preserve will close temporarily starting Wednesday, March 25th. While we understand the importance of having outdoor spaces to enjoy during this difficult time, there is simply no way to maintain proper social distancing in the most heavily used areas of the Preserve. While the Preserve is closed, no public access will be permitted, trespassers will be prosecuted. When appropriate, we will return to our normal operating hours.

Thank you for continued support and we look forward to having you back out at the creek soon!

Admission to Turkey Creek Nature Preserve is always FREE, but maintaining it is NOT! Please visit our support page to learn how you can help keep TCNP open.

Turkey Creek Nature Preserve is always closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, as well as all major holidays (May 27th, July 4th, November 22nd, November 23rd, December 24th, December 25th, December 31st, and January 1st).

Operational hours change seasonally, and are subject to change without notification.
