We were looking for some outdoor fun over Thanksgiving and found it on the large concrete patio outside one of their museums where the kids enjoyed inline skating and the young one on her scooter...

My family and I absolutely love JB! I grew up a block away from there and now I have the privilege of taking my son there as well and I truly hope that it continues for the generations to come. We come here all year round. There are several different activities you can choose from. However summertime is our favorite because we love swimming at the pool. It's cheap and it's got multiple areas to play in. There's a rock climbing wall, lazy river, splash pad, 12' high dive, a regular diving bored, a pool that's 5ft deep, and a water slide. I definitely recommend taking the family.
Lots of trails, and plenty of nature. So many neat things to do. Hiking trails, archery, disc golf, seasonal events, etc. A great place to bring the family and enjoy the outdoors. If you're looking for something to do, don't forget about visiting local parks. It was a great day, and had a blast hanging out here.
