Beautiful for walking on a nice day. Plenty of trails and gorgeous scenery. Lots of wildlife if that’s your thing (wouldn’t recommend going here if it isn’t).

There are miles of relatively level hiking trails. Different topography - boardwalk areas over the marsh, forest. Great place to wander. Bring a picnic and eat by the pond.

The hiking here is fairly easy and the scenery absolutely beautiful. We saw people painting the scenery, people reflecting by the water. It's a great place to get away for a day

A walk around the excellent museum after a stroll around the park/lake proved very popular with our four children aged under 10. A wide range of nature focused exhibits, many interactive, kept them engaged for quite some time. Highly recommended.

I'm not a snowshoer myself but I believe it would be a great place for it. There are miles of trails through all kinds of terrain.

No, only if there is a special attraction or venue going on or as stated, the museum, which is very interesting. It isn't expensive, can't remember the exact amount, but will not break the bank. Just the walk is... More
