The water exhibit has some great stations that demonstrated, water filtering (complete with the smells of pretreated water), water pressure - push a button to raise a bucket of... More

Either as a family or with a class, this makes for a great day of being indoors and out. The trails are well marked, the displays are good, and the ropes course looks interesting. They have ziplining, too! My son loves it here!

If you love the outdoors and looking for a great park to do team building activities or just to take a leisurely stroll through the woods while you listen to nature and the light crashing sounds of water, this is the place to go. It's perfect for destination weddings, birthday parties and other celebratory events.

Lots of GREAT information and learning going on here! We like taking visitors with kids here. Lots of room to also stretch out and walk on trails...the pond right by the front door has turtles and fish in it so you can show the smallest of children 'wildlife'! :) The staff is always friendly & informative - while walking down...
