We took our grandchildren ages 18, 13, and 8. Our 13 year old grandson enjoyed making a boat to race, and nearly won! They enjoyed the trails and seeing the wind sculptures. Of course they like the gift shop! We had a perfect day.
First time visit and we were pleased. Not crowded and the surroundings were absolutely beautiful and peaceful. Tried the cafe and was quite pleased with local food sourcing. Some organics were available and we were very pleased. Nice atmosphere and great tasting fresh food. Will be back soon.Nice walking trails. Didn't see as many flowers as I thought I would, but still lovely greenery.
