Have you come across the Tonaquint Nature Center yet? If not, make your way over there because you are missing out on this lovely mini oasis. Tonaquint Nature Center is located just west of Southgate Golf Course and you are bound to enjoy some peace and quiet, that is unless there is an event taking place. If so, plan another day! It is what one would refer to as a little hidden gem in the middle of St. George and it is nestled right along the Santa Clara River.
- Take in the songs of all the birds that call Tonaquint Nature Center home.
- Observe the playful ducks and swans as they stir about in the pond.
- Enjoy the sounds of the Santa Clara River as the water slowly ripples by, or stop and cool your feet off.
- Try and count the numerous lizards that will cross your path in every direction.
- Sit and enjoy a book in the amphitheatre or bring along a bag of costumes for the kids to put on an impromptu skit!
