I really enjoyed this small pocket of nature. The small nature center is very nice and the grounds are well maintained. There is a small playground but it was very crowded. The only drawback is that it is very busy on the weekends.

One of the nicest nature centers I have been to. A lot of wildlife (cranes, otter, ducks) and beautiful paths both paved and unpaved.

Came here one morning and did a hike around the ground. It's very nice and quiet (except for the numerous school kids), and as it is free it must be a nice area to go for a walk now and then. The historical farm area...More
