  • This place is HUGE. I have hiked here several times and brought friends, and I feel like I'm always discovering a new niche to the place. In some areas there are open gold fields, and in others shady ...  more »

  • This is free to visit. Parking is free. Parking is next to the building but it's a long walk to the entrance. Inside the employee was nice. They have an auditorium which was not in use during my visit...  more »

  • I brought my family here the other day and everyone had a blast. As soon as we walk in we were greeted with a bunch of turtle at the desk. The kids were able to touch and feed them. They loved the hands on displays about wildlife and the huge aquarium at the back. The park is great with many different paths. There are small lakes with bridges to cross filled with turtles of all sizes and large fish. We also saw a few deer. Awesome place....best part it's free.
  • Always enjoy bringing my family here, or a nice walk by myself just to get away in nature. We've been coming here for over 10 yrs. The turtles are awesome along with exploring the rest of the creatures.
  • My grandsons, ages 8 and 6, enjoyed the interactive exhibits. Some of them didn't work but the ones that worked were fun. It was too warm today to walk the trails.
  • Awesome walking and biking trails! There's usually cool wildlife to spot while enjoying the miles of well-beaten trails. You can look for wild birds squirrels, ducks, geese, rabbits, and sometimes beavers.
  • I had a very relaxing visit with nature. Shot some great pictures and video.
