The Bell Creek Nature Preserve is a 477 acre Preserve located east of McMullen Road, south of Boyette Road in Riverview. This preserve was acquired to provide protection for natural plant communities and associated protected species, extend a greenway, preserve a wildlife corridor that was being lost to development, and provide numerous passive recreational opportunities.

The Preserve provides trails through different habitat areas with mature trees and a varied understory, as well as open areas dominated by grasses and herbaceous species. The trails are marked and signage clearly state that the Preserve is only open during daylight hours.
