Oliver’s Woods Nature Preserve

Wooded escape in the center of a bustling commercial district

Tucked alongside the quiet natural space of the White River and steps from Keystone at the Crossing, Oliver’s Woods Nature Preserve is a natural immersion among a vibrant commercial district. Volunteers have worked to build trails, grow native plants and remove invasive species from the woods. The preserve also offers a canoe launch and event space.
