Such a cute little place to walk! I love seeing the turtles and birds here. My dogs love it too. Easy trail with a little center too more »
Had an excellent time. Friendly and helpful staff. Full size fire truck! Great area reserved just for little ones. Huge space, perfect for events and includes a massive kitchen area. One issue though it is impossible to keep track of little ones going down the slide repeatedly from 2nd to 1st story, because the huge concrete staircase they run back up.
We went on a field trip with my daughter's first grade class. It was so much fun! There was an archeological dig zone, a water flow area, a fire truck, a craft area, and much much more. The kids also got to explore the wetlands natural area. The staff was very helpful, informative, and patient. I just wish we'd had more time! I plan to go back and spend the day because 2.5 hours was not enough.
