My kids love the pottery class. Also there is a park with stuff to do for little kids. And a colonial wooden cabin, that they love to walk through. It is a nice place to explore. It also offers calls for adults and adults with toddlers.

This was a great learning experience and a great walk around a nice area of the city. Make sure you take the walk to the river.

This gem of a garden is a great place to spend an hour or two by yourself or with kids. There are many fun things for children to explore and entertain themselves with in a natural setting. Hard to believe it is free, although they have many programs that I would recommend.

We took our summer camp kids and had a guided tour. I have been there on my own with my grandkids and it is also a great place to wander on your own. Very interesting, relaxing and fun
