This is a beautiful back to nature area within the city. There are walking trails throughout the grounds. Some trails have stepping stones that cross over streams, others have small foot bridges or there are paths that just go around a pond and through the woods or meadow.

We all loved this place. It is peaceful an and beautiful. There are many things to look at and do in the building. Afterwards you can walk the trails and see different wildlife- ducks, turtle, fish, geese etc... The place is beautiful and is worth it just to see the architecture or the building. Many natural elements are included in... More
