We love to be outside exploring. This large Arboretum is wonderful to get lost in nature. We will see new insects and mamals everytime . I have three boys and a girl and they will play imaginary games in the woods and trails. They like exploring the bluffs. You can walk for Miles if you want. There is also a kids section that we spend at least an hour in. There is a native grass maze that is fun for a game hide and seek. THere is a new train area with real train cars. It is not complete quite yet. Oh yeah, the front part has beautiful flower garders and a large pond. But with boys, flowers don't interest them. Great pictures by this amature have been taken all over the park. This is a must on any day. Bring your insect repellant, dog and good walking shoes.
