  • Absolutely stunning, beautiful. Lot's of wildlife. Decent size. Fun, family friendly. Clean and well maintained. Can spend the entire day here observing. Absolutely love this park. 👍👍👍👍👍👍
  • The tall tower to climb is fun and offers a wonderful view. Butterfly house has all stages of metamorphosis to see. Cute gift shop, sign to tell what trees are there. Ponds and trails make this place a perfect walking spot! Many pokestops too!
  • Clean, well maintained, and wholly beautiful. As most things in Dayton, it appears to constantly be under construction, which does disrupt the otherwise calm atmosphere. Overall, it is a very pleasant environment and great for anyone looking to experience the beauty metro parks have to offer.
  • Really great place to explore. The only negative is the crowds. Go on the hiking trails towards the back of the park to enjoy more nature and less people
  • I attended a wedding in one of the buildings at this facility and it was a very cozy and fun space! The grounds are beautiful and there is one of the most amazing Tree Houses I've been inside of in a long time!
