  • Staff was friendly and informative. What a neat location! This place is such a neat spot and the kids area is FANTASTIC. Bonus points for being FREE! There was a yarn bombing event when we visited which was an extra special treat! We had so much fun walking the grounds.
  • What a lovely place. I found the children's garden to be fun. Children are allowed to wade into the small pond there if they want to and seems to be a great learning experience for kids. Interesting living roof. They do not charge an entrance fee but you can leave a donation.
