Reviewed September 17, 2012

Try to visit in the early spring or late fall- mosquitoes are so big they could carry off small children:)

“WONDERFUL place for children and adults.”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

My kids and I went here with a friend and her children last summer. We had a blast. The kids love running along the paths and exploring. They thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the various butterflies in the butterfly exhibit (and the volunteers there were more than happy to entertain lots of questions and teach the kids all kinds of fun facts.) We spent over an hour just letting the kids run through the water area.

“Great Trails”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

We love to visit. There are several trails that make for a nice time. The trails are soft and scenic. It is fun to take some time and explore every now and then.
