A beautiful place to visit and enjoy the day walking the paths among nature and art work. A great place to bring children or taking a romantic walk.

Enjoyed roaming the trails with my husband and our dog. We went on a weekday while schools were in session and I don't know if we even saw 5 other people. The trails were well maintained and some of the art is great.

I took some of my grandchildren to see the Fairy Houses and Gnomes. Had a nice walk and enjoyed the paths. We look forward to going back soon!

I initially brought my 3 boys out to "hunt" Pokémon. After our first visit, we've been back 3 times. Such a nice quiet place to walk and enjoy nature and time with the kids. Makes for a great place to have pictures taken as well!

Yes it's as you come in, in the back of the nature center. I've never eaten there yet they do sell veggies and flowers to plant in your yard and the prices are extremely cheap compared to the garden stores.
