  • Awesome park with a great playground for kids. It has smaller playground equipment for the babies and then another set for big kids. The pond itself is neat to walk around to see how many turtles and frogs you can spot. It's a relatively easy walk around the pond.... Only one small hill. The nature center is really cool because it has real wildlife, such as snakes, frogs and turtles that you can view. No petting. It also seems to have a good program for kids to come explore nature and the park, but we haven't done that yet.
  • This is a great place to take the kids. The playground is excellent and it is fenced in. The nature center has lots of live animals including snakes, turtles, and frogs. There is a bird feeding station just outside a big window so you can watch wild birds. There is an easy trail that goes to a small pond. Out front of the center there is a butterfly garden that is full of various butterflies and other insects. I've gone here a few times and will go back again.
