About Darien Nature Center

The Darien Nature Center is located in the heart of Darien’s Cherry Lawn Park. Built by our generous supporters, the Nature Center boasts a state-of-the-art building designed to foster an interest in and respect for the natural world. Our facility is home to a variety of animals, a grand exhibit gallery, a small theater, a library and several classrooms for our nursery school programs. But we spend most of our time outdoors, exploring the 27.5 acres of fields, pond, and trails that surround us. The Nature Center is available for parties, meetings, and receptions. Our building can hold 150 inside (40 seated), with room for more if the event extends outdoors. A great place to entertain for any occasion!
