So much to do here and it's all so close! The Botanical Gardens are very nice and much larger than expected. Our kids lives exploring and seeing what they could fine. Driving around is also easy as they have signage everywhere. Great spot for a little day trip.
The Wildcat creek path is part of the large loop that includes the Meadow trail. The creek trail is a perfect one mile out and one mile back trail for a hot day. It's shady and because it runs along the creek, it's much cooler than the rest of the area. Easy trail... mostly level too
