So much to learn and the price couldn't be better - FREE!. My grandkids love the fossil digging and the maze. Walking down by the river is nice too.

You can walk through at your own pace and look at everything. It a nice place and you can take the river walk path down to the Maumee River.

This place is truly amazing. Overlooked in our own backyard. There is something here for kids of all ages. The geodesic biodome is very cool. My 3 year old loves the musical instruments. My older kids love the fossil area. Tip: Do not take strollers if you're going to do the riverwalk. It is multilevel. This is a family favorite... More

Anybody can teach and sign-up for classes, which are usually very affordable to take. Beautiful gardens with outdoor instruments, a play area, a river walk, a geodesic greehouse with a koi pond. And an annual fiber arts show! What's not to love?

Used to take my kids here when they were small. Now that they are grown, I still go there just to walk around and enjoy the scenery and friendly people. A relaxing visit every time.

Virginia Stranahan founded and left her estate to The 577 Foundation in Perrysburg. Great gardens and a tropical biodome are among the features. There is a kid's play area with climbing wall, musical instruments, a fossil bed, and in the warmer months a stage area where your kids (or adults) can put on their own puppet show. A used book...

Super place to visit with children. Community gardens, outside instruments to play, authentic log cabin and my grandchildrens favorite, the fossil dig. Close to a park with big playground too.

An amazing place for children and adults. Browse the used book room, dig for fossils, enjoy the gardens and geodome, see bees inside the hive, walk the river trail, warch birds or just sit and read. One morning I encountered six dear grazing near the river walk! There is a children's garden where they can have a puppet show, make... More
