Kids had a great time checking out all of the cool fountains and statues, while also inspiring my husband and I to make our yard potentially more creative.
As other reviews have said, the smaller your kids, the shorter their attention span will be here, but there's no charge to visit, so even if you just stop for a few minutes and a couple of fun photos it's worth it.
