Perfect place to take the kids on a rainy day. Very educational and interesting information on the various rivers in the area and the fish that inhabit the area. Much information in the ecosystems..

Been taking my dAughter here since she was a baby. She is now 5 and still loves it. Now we have a baby bog and he loves it here too. It's safe, clean , child-proofed, educational. Great community resource! And it's free! Great indoor play area for little ones.
