What a great park to visit! Most breathtaking views. Nice little gift shops, a little restaurant, lots to see. We bought a membership for the observatory and we got a full tour of “behind the scenes” for the weather observatory. Kids enjoyed it. Dress warm!

There are charges but they are very reasonable. Check directly with the operators of each attraction as they do change.
