  • Very expansive, beautifully maintained, imaginatively themed. The most impressive areas were the Adventure Playground and Peggy’s Pond. Good for big groups. However, I would only go to The Gathering Place if you have small children. There are very few adult activities other than viewing the landscape and getting adult beverages. Our party did enjoy taking paddle boats through Peggy’s Pond. Also, there are very few water fountains, so bring your own water. Not a lot of signage; it can be difficult to tell where you are, so be sure to grab a map or download the park’s app. But if you do happen to have small children, it’s a great place to let them run free and enjoy the outdoors.
  • Fantastic park for the entire family. Several eateries and many places to just sit back and relax. The variety of activities is phenomenal. Several locations for parking-- just in case you want to visit one portion of the park. Well planned out and easy access for those using scooters or wheel chairs or needing strollers usage. Just keep up those little ones.
