  • I went there because I had heard there was beautiful walking paths and they were right. I didn't go into the visitors center. Only complaint I have is the only trail maps there are at the entrance at ...  more »
  • The trails are well marked, and the visitors centre provided a handy map on options to take and the associated length. It was very peaceful. There were families and joggers around on the smaller loops...  more »

  • We visited on August 19, 2017. First, took a one and half mile walk down both paved and dirt paths. We saw several turtles in the pond and caught sight of three deer who stopped by for a cool drink. The grandkids were thrilled to see them up close. Next, we stopped by the nature center. Really enjoyed the hands-on exhibits and the observation room. We will definitely be back!
  • 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.
  • Beautiful place to walk. And cleanses away the everyday stresses in life. My kids love it too!!
  • The people who helped us were very informative and helpful. The process of getting our pass was handled well and it didn't take long to get our passes.
  • 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.
