  • Nice place! You can feed the fish there and you learn a lot. In the right season, you can even see the salmon climbing the fish ladder, or see the fish spawning. Used to go there for field trips or for fun all the time as a kid. They also have a nice visitor's center. However, the price of the fish food has gone up from a nickel for some food to a quarter, and the portions have gotten smaller as well. So if you're planning to feed the fish, remember to bring quarters! The staff there are all very helpful and polite. Great place to bring the kids!
  • Feeding the baby fish is fun but they need more activities for younger kids, some shady areas, play place with more learning hands on interaction
  • This is one of my favorite places to take my kids. On one hand it's sad that we have to do this in order to keep these beautiful fish alive, on the other hand, it sure is awesome to watch them climb the fish ladder.
  • Lots of fun for the whole family. Great learning about fish and you get to feed hundreds of baby fish.
  • Enjoyable, peaceful,low key, seem like everyone minds their time business.
