We took the kids to Bugfest and it was really cute. They had it set up where they could catch bugs in jars and do crafts. The kids had a good time for the price.

Let's be clear here - it's a walk (not a hike) through a very interesting southern landscape that has great botanical signage and terrific helpful staff in the headquarters/gift shop. If you walk the entire property, it's likely around 2 miles - but allow plenty...More

This is a work in progress. It is always being improved and most of the work is done by volunteers. If you're a mall rat you probably wouldn't enjoy it, but if you have a love for the outdoors it is very nice.

We enjoyed our visit here (not easy with picky teenagers). My teens really liked feeding the turtles. The pavilion is remarkable from its every viewpoint in the park. This is definitely a relaxing hidden treasure.

This facility is an excellent day trip, for those, fortunate to be that close. The property is well designed and laid out, for the visitor's experience. The volume of biota, is worth the investment in time. Stress free and good for all ages.
