Hubby and I took our grandkids for a morning of hiking and just looking at all the beauty that surrounded us. Was not disappointed. We only live a few miles from here and this was the first time we.... more »
Awesome place to see nature so much to see. Great for adults and kids. Interactive things to do inside, as well as hiking trails, and picnic tables. more »
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.
