Not the easiest place to get to as it is definitely not on any major route, but worth the trip. Probably better for families as the focus is certainly on kids and making things fun for them. We went in August when little was blooming except some wildflowers because we wanted to go to the butterfly house which is only open in July and August. This would probably be more interesting in the spring or fall for blooms or autumn color.
Be prepared to walk as there is no transportation within the park. Some pathways are hilly, but even my old knees made it. We did not attempt any of the longer hiking trails as it was too hot the day we went. Bring a lunch if you plan to stay all day. They only sell snacks at the visitor center -- crackers, granola bars, etc.
The butterfly house was nice, but not as nice as others we have been to in other parts of the country, The space is small and the variety of butterflies was not great. Mostly monarchs and swallowtails with two or three other species, as well. We've been to other butterfly houses that have literally hundreds or thousands of butterflies, but this place had maybe a few dozen at most.
Overall good visit.
