  • My intent was just to view the Windmill and Marsh areas, so I did not go into the park itself or tour the Windmill. I was here a young lad for a school trip. I took some nice pictures and went into town to have lunch with a friend. You will not be disappointed! Great experience.
  • Walked around the pond on the path they have. It was lovely. Saw a lot of wildlife and got a good workout too.
  • Unfortunately we visited the area during the off season but the structures, the bridges, and the gardens look like they are probably quite beautiful when they are in bloom.
  • Cool place. Kids will love it hear. Good for an afternoon visit. Must come during tulip festival!
  • The wind might of blew me a little to hard! Would recommend to every guy looking for a place to get "blown".
