  • We love this place. We only wish we could take our leashed dogs. We do understand, however, that the rule no dogs is because someone abused the privilege.  more »

  • This is such a lovely place to take your family on sunny summer day, for a hike and picnic. Wonderful learning center!  more »
  • Our family loved this park. It was beautiful and there was something for everyone to enjoy. Kids loved the rock trails, wood forts, streams and rock formations. We loved the gardens and nature center. Bring a picnic. Indoor restrooms and drinking fountains available, as well as outhouses.
  • We went here on a field trip last week. I learned a lot as an adult and the kids seemed to be very interested. They did a great job at keeping the kids engaged in all the learning activities. The also had a big play area for the kids at the end of the field trip to help burn off some energy. We will definitely be coming back as a family this summer.
  • Excellent place to let the kids explore and create! The sticks/logs area is wonderful, the rock formation for climbing is helpful at getting their energy out and my kids just adore the man made stream and pond with sand area. Bring a change of clothes for your little one in case they get into the water!!
  • Awesome place to take your family. Younger kids can enjoy the outdoor play area with rock climbing, small man-made stream (bring extra set of clothes). Great for kids of all ages. I love that the entire play area theme is connected to nature.
  • You cannot ride bikes in the trails and the park ranger lady told us we had to walk our bikes past people. I did not see any signs at the front. I guess I should have looked better. Will not recommend this park. I did see that said no dogs. So at least there was that. So remember NO BIKES OR DOGS
