Very neat place to take a picture by, but that's about it. You could walk the trails at the convention center, but we had just walked the trails at the nature center.

Nice to take a picture by - wouldn't consider it an attraction, kids thought it was cool. I don't think trip advisor should list this as an attraction, it's the same thing as a sculpture in a park

When you look at the Wailing Wall the painting shows a lot of activity and it is the entry to a great birding and butterfly area with lots of trees and shrubs planted for various people from the area with their stories shown

The Whaling Wall is a beautifully painted mural but that is all it is. I don't think it should be listed as a separate attraction but part of the nature trail.

This huge painting can be seen from the main road. It is very well done and interesting to look at. The reason I only gave 3 stars is that it is not a great 'destination', but the great thing is that it is right next to the Nature Trail. They go together well for a nice place to visit.

We got some fun pictures of the kids being 'attacked' by the whales. It's a fun photo op if you're doing the nature trail that is next to it. I wouldn't exactly call it a destination though.
