    Awesome spot to take the kids. It's free! Kids can pick up nature items and trade them in for other items. Rippling stream is a great spot for the entire family. Live animals and more!

    The animal area is ok not a lot to see. Also not pet friendly so don't bring your dog to walk around.

    It's free and there are live animals to observe including a hive of bees. What's not to love?

    The passport detective thing has ended ( a couple of years ago). Don't ask about it- current staff was befuddled

    Grab a detective pack at the visitors’ desk and hot-foot it down the Eco-Detective Trail to see how many indicators of wildlife you can discover around the pond. Powered by
