Situated right next to the playground, have a play & learn day with your little ones. I recently visited with my friend and her daughter and it was a good way to wind her down after the park and teachable moments, that add to the experience and sharing.

This waterfowl reserve is terrific. It is constructed so that if you are pushing your children on the swings you look out and directly ahead is an island with foliage. Very friendly place, the lake is gorgeous, extremely beautiful at night.
