It's beautiful throughout the different seasons. My kids grew up playing in the shrub part and rolling down the giant hill. Great paths for walking. Much nature to see!!

MSU’s grounds are Beautiful to explore with amazing collection of flora and fauna. An excellent location for a photo shoot and the indoor conservancy works well on days of inclement weather. Guided Tours and classes are also available.

One of my favorite places to unwind and take in the beauty of nature. The conifers, hosta hill, the hidden lake, driving and walking trails not to mention the conservatory and gift shop. Truly something here for all nature lovers.
