I really enjoyed walking around the property but it's not a full day outing. You can't bring dogs into the children's area or anywhere where food and drinks are served (food truck area). The items in the retail store are WAY overpriced.

All is community oriented, from the market to the bike repair shop and, of course, sustainable. We loved it, even if we did not come for any of the myriads of events they offer
