You can find different activities here if you know the schedules. It is a great place for families with young kids. It can be a great place to observe different types of wildlife, flowers, butterflies, etc.

Quiet, beautiful, amazing scenes. If you like to look at flowers, birds, trees and gardens, this is the place to see all. The supporters of these gardens have done a great job.

This is a very nice area. Lots of trails to choose from. If you add them to your facebook page, they have walks and events to teach you about the different plants, trees, and wildlife in the area.

Yes, I have seen them there. I believe they have a leash mandate and a pet waste policy. It doesn't seem to be on their website. If you have additional questions contact Erin Smaldone (Education Director) at 304-216-8704.
