The Nature Center In Kansas That’s Worth Its Own Day Trip
There’s never a bad time of year to enjoy the outdoors in the Sunflower State! We’ve found a great park in Kansas that’s the perfect place to stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air.
You’ll find Chaplin Nature Center at 27801 27th Dr, Arkansas City, Kansas.
However, they have said that until Spring 2020, you will need to take a detour to get to the nature center unless you are heading from I-35. The Madison Bridge on hwy 166 is closed, and they have a few instructions for visitors.
They say to “ignore all the detour signs for 166 East, continue on I-35 to exit 4, go east on 166, and go around any barricades until you get to the turn off at 21st road. If you’re coming from Ark City from the north, take 252nd Road west towards Gueda Springs, turning south on 11th and then east on 272nd. If you’re coming from the south, take 206th road west, and stay on the paved road to hwy 166, going west to the turn off at 21st road.
