Great place to get away from the city and connect with nature. New expansion planned for this summer to include an outdoor stage for community events. Many events are planned throughout the year including Ribfest, Canada Day, and walks for many assorted charities.

The building inside is nice but not very friendly. The grounds and walking paths are not kept up like they used to be, perhaps because of the river flooding.
