A great place for kids to let off steam and enjoy water activities. Many people stopped to take pictures.

My 2.5 year old and I explored this place on a rainy morning. They have a fun area for hands on learning, for kids under 4, and my daughter's favorite- fish, frogs, and a bicycle to ride on. Just a good, free place to go.
