No matter the time of year, the plants and flowers are gorgeous! The paths are well laid out and there are fun areas for the kids to play. Love going to wander around or just sit by the waterfall and read.

Have been going here for years, always take in the luminary walk during the holidays. Event very well prepped, nice scenery, areas to keep warm, refreshments, and even Santa Claus. Very nice.

One of my most favorite places on earth!!! The grounds are peaceful and awe inspiring. There are loads of walking trails, bird watching areas, and fish to feed.

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.
