Had a great time at the park. My grandchildren enjoyed the activities about the animals that the park ranger had going the day we were there. The center is something that we can really be proud of in McKean County.

The visitor center is new and a great introduction to the Kinzua Sky Walk and its history. We loved the interactive exhibits and their interesting blend of high quality audio and video in what appears as turn of the century cogs, wheels, and industrial controls.
