  • This is a great place to take a leisurely walk or to take a fun run. The views here are outstanding, especially in the fall and spring. This is a must visit if in the area. It is also a great place to go get some lovely photos taken due to the fantastic scenery.
  • Great park in the summer time, but very wet and muddy in the winter and spring months. Has a lot of interesting sights including a tour building with a pavilion for bird is watching and a well-built wooden bridge overlooking the valley
  • I loved the visitor's center 20 years ago & love it more now! My grandson enjoyed all the activities, indoor tent & sitting area outside. The paths surrounding it are perfect for a family, sharing with a friend or a solo excursion. Very peaceful!
  • I love how they have made this location as beautiful as it is educational. So many things to see here. The herb and rock garden is an awesome place to spot creatures of all kinds. The selfish part of me wishes less people came here though. It can get a little overcrowded.
  • Love this place! Great place to observe from the inside or outside. Knowledgeable staff. Great place for a quiet walk and a fantastic place to bring kids!
