  • I have been going here for 20 years now and Every time its like a new experience. We always walk the pond loop: feed the fish, climb the tower, sit in the turtle shack and watch the turtles. It’s always so fun. It’s the perfect distance and it’s 95% shades. The inside of the building is educational and breathtaking. The new kids playground they build is extremely adorable and I am glad it isn’t like a traditional playground. I love this place. It’s a must go every time I travel to Ohio!
  • Hands down, the best place to visit with kids. We love this place. I've taken many family trips here, and introduced friends to this hidden gem. We always have a great time here. I can't wait to explore some more! There's no way to experience everything they offer in one trip.
