Fun to check it out, especially with smaller children who enjoy animals. It is fun to feed the fish-- true for adults as well!

My children enjoyed coming here to feed the fish (the smell of the fish food, which can be purchased on site, is something you never forget - ha!). There is also a nature trail which goes up a hill and connects to the rest of the Parkway.

The Trout Nursery is a great place to go, particularly on warm days. I ventured out to the Nursery to see what was there. The place itself is outdoors and very open.

This is a great site for a brief visit to add on to your covered bridge tour. Maybe an hours worth of fun for the kids. Take time to feed the trout and take a look at some of the biggest trout you will ever see.

Fun and educational experience with my kid cousins. They loved feeding the fish which only coats like 50 cents per bag of fish food.

I took my children here many times when they were little. They loved feeding the fish and walking by the stream. It is very peaceful here and a great place to take children for a different kind of entertainment. Now, I like to just stroll around and feel the tranquility.

I go here often(weather permitting) to walk. It is 6 miles round trip. there are a few hills but the majority is level. And if you want to walk less, there are a couple of places, one of them a covered bridge, where you can cross the river and walk back. I also come here with my grandchildren. For 50... More
