  • What a beautiful place! My sister and I had never been here and we decided to go and see the swans. Well we were not disappointed! They were just beautiful and the grounds were so beautiful as well...

  • Beautiful area with lots of wildlife and plants. The pathways are wide and flat. The grounds are wheelchair and stroller accessible. Some of the swans are very comfortable around humans so you may see some of them up close. Just remember to NOT approach them!! Don't forget to take the bridge across the road to see the other side of the park. And bring water!
  • Beautiful place to visit, go on walk/jog, have a picnic, let your kids play on the playground! It’s so peaceful in the spring there are many many different flowers, the chocolate garden is my personal favorite. Don’t forget to take the elevator to the other half of the park & the gift shop has a few different souvenirs/T-shirt’s!
