Not really near or in the middle of anything. Which means it's usually not overly crowded. Lots of room to let the little ones loose a bit. Nice quiet time spent with the family.

This is really geared for the younger kids. Our 14 year old grandson came with us when we took our 4 year old grandson. He was just glad his younger brother had fun.
