  • FREE: Beautiful outdoor trail over the water way. Great for getting the family out and checking out the local animals/birds.

  • My 4 year old daughter absolutely LOVES this place! We spend hours here playing around. There’s SO many little things to do, from the art center, to the farmers market. The kitchen is so realistic and teaches children the art of multitasking with cooking, laundry, and taking care of the babies all at the same time. The water table, grocery store and doctors play station always grab her attention. It’s very well managed with helpful staff and is always clean regularly. Thank you for providing such a fun place for the kids!
  • This is an amazing resource for STEM experiences for you and your kids. So much to do, see, touch, hear and learn from in each focus area. Wherever your interests in the sciences lie, you can find something that appeals to you. If you're planning a group event, there are rooms available to accommodate your needs. The center will even host live science experiments that are age appropriate. How cool is that? Don't miss the opportunity to have fun while maybe learning something new... it's just around the corner!
