About the Preserve

The Lorraine Cherry Nature Park Preserve is a 20-acre forest inside the loop 610, located at 2400 W 11th Street. It's located in the middle of the Timbergrove Manor neighborhood, fairly close to Memorial Park and the Arboretum. Great Horned Owl sightings are common during the months of September - March. The owls regularly nest in the park and can be observed raising their young. The preserve is Site UTC-093A on The Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail.
