The playground, the nature center and the pond are all wonderful. We take our grand-kids there all the time. They all enjoy it, 10 months-12 years!

This is a small park with a great little center. They have lots of programs for kids and do birthday parties. There is a play area and trails. Kids can learn about animals and nature.

Nice place to visit with small children. There is a small walking trail and you can spot turtles and frogs in the pond. They also have an indoor exhibit where kids can see a number of small animals. Plan on spending an hour here.

Nice little nature center with displays for the kids. Small playground in front and a nice paved trail around the pond. Great place for a walk with the family.

We have had Cub Scout events here, hunted turtles in the pond, wandered the woods trails, waded in the streams, and generally had a great time. And the Nature Center is pretty good, too.

This is a lovely little park for families, with a nice trail along the creek. There is a very nice visitors center with local animals and activities for young children.
