Tyrrell Park Nature Center is housed in the newly refurbished CCC building in the park that was originally built in the mid 1930's. At the Nature Center you can enjoy the history of building, park and Beaumont. In the near future expect to enjoy interactive exhibits focused on the scenic natural environment and wildlife of Southeast Texas.

Educational Programming!

Tyrrell Park Nature Center (TPNC) is operated by the Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), and offers this free program, “Nature Explorers” to help children develop a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world.

The Nature Explorers “Come and Go” sessions are FREE and open to the public and will be held at the Tyrrell Park Nature Center, located at 3930 Babe Zaharias Drive in Beaumont in our renovated historic building in the center of Tyrrell Park.

  • Families can drop in anytime between 10am – 1pm on the selected Saturday dates, to learn interesting facts while having fun, do a “make & take” and explore that month’s nature topic.
  • Each Saturday Session will be set up with a couple of stations for an interactive science experiment & nature-based craft that relates to that month’s topic. Volunteers are available to guide families with hands-on activities. Rotation between stations s is self-paced and designed as “come and go” program. Crafts will be available while supplies last.
  • The Nature, Science, and Arts Interactives are geared primarily towards children ages 5 to 10 years-old; but All are Welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
