    Pretty well maintained area. Bathrooms, playground for kids, and a little runway they can mess around on. Just too far away from the runways/terminal to get the best views. Good places to visit once, but once you've done it no reason to return.

    Had a blast(off?) with the kids. There is a playground and mock runway that the kids absolutely LOVED.
