  • A must see. Flowers are in full bloom for 2 weeks. Beware of bees and ticks. No restrooms or benches. Not a park but a wildlife center. Go to experience the beauty that is nature
  • Breathtaking sunflower fields. Great short walk, was quite sunny and warm the day we went so the trip was cut short but plenty of great photos taken and memories made! Parking and entry are free, but please don't pick the flowers. They aren't meant for personal collecting.
