Dog walkers (with leashes), stroller-pushers, wheelchair wranglers, families, all mingle on the paved paths and grassy slopes where it's easy to forget that a city surrounds it.
Children love to wander off the asphalt paths and explore the groves of magnolias, lilacs, rhododendrons and azaleas, which will be exploding into color in another couple of months.

It is a wonderful place to enroll your preschooler in pre-school classes, and for school-age children to explore and learn through their many exhibits and classes, and activities.
Lots of hands on exhibits (that actually worked) for kids, yet also more serious exhibitions for study, including one on slavery and the underground railroad, native american culture, and global ecology.
