Very educational and fun to realize what the point of the water gardens is. Saw lots of birds and wildlife there. Had a good walk. Parking is close. Is ADA accessible as well.

Multiple trails well maintained for walking. Dogs welcome on leash. Wildlife viewable. Water features present. Would be nicer if the ponds were not overgrown with cat tails and clover?
