  • I left this place. Such tranquility and serenity but I always find myself in being the people who own it and have those gorgeous buildings on their property. It's quite historic and I would love to know more about the place. I like taking my dogs and they get to run the trails and the Open Fields. I've gone by myself and stop by the little Pond and watch the Ducks. As I said wonderfully tranquil and if Tranquility isn't your thing please don't go because I don't ever want it to change their.
  • Really cool place! Very kid friendly! We just went for the free Earth Day event. There is a little store to get drinks/candy, but no food, so bring a picnic if you know you'll get hungry. There's lots of walking involved, but definitely worth it! Beautiful place and very knowledgeable, friendly people!
