Hansen Nature Area is located on the west side of the city off South Maple Rd. This 9-acre neighborhood park has a beautiful woodland and an open field with a small play area. Parking is usually available in the parking lot of Grace Bible church which is adjacent to the property.
The woodland is very open, and in spring the forest floor is blanketed with trout lilies. A small pond adds interest to the woods. An unpaved trail allows for a quiet walk through the mixed hardwood forest.
