  • This is such a cute little park! The nature trails around the lakes are perfect for people of all ages. The ground is very level with only one or two places where you need to navigate around roots. The playground is amazing and also nice for children (and admittedly adults) of all ages. The indoor aquarium is small, but has a great selection of fish and turtles to learn about and admire. And park/aquarium entry is free! Can't beat that.
  • This place has a very nice play area for children of all ages. The Nature Center is small but houses quite a bit of animals such as Turtles. The trails are mostly accessible but there are some certain areas we have had to turn around and backtrack instead. The name is correct it has Three Lakes that have trails around them. Decent amount of parking but definitely stays busy.
  • Great place to take kids to teach them about the great outdoors. Has 3 ponds or lakes to walk around. In the the warmer months you will see all types of animals. A nature center to see some local wild live to our parks and rivers.
  • Paved and concrete for younger kids bikes, skateboards, and scooters. Picnic shelter, picnic benches for meals. Playgrounds and swings for kids. Grills for cooking, paved and gravel trails for biking, hiking... indoor restrooms and nature center. One of the best parks in the county.
  • Beautiful scenery! My dog loves to go for walks. If you're going for the indoor museum...it's never open. I've been several times during their open hours and everything is locked and nothing is in there. But the lake is amazing in itself! You can see fish by the dock and the little ones love it. Large children's playground as well!
