Lovely place when the weather is nice. You can't feed the birds bread, however, bring green leafy vegetables instead I was told. Lots of walking with some places to sit and relax.

This park is totally different, it is beautiful, well maintained , a lot of different kind of artwork along the trails. in the summer there are native flowers everywhere. This is not your typical park, you will be amazed at this place.

Hi, There are a few restaurants in the Village. The Three Village Inn is easy to walk in and use the bathroom. It's a hotel and pub/restaurant. There is a gas station that may have a restroom.
