I live in Delta, and decided to stop and see this attraction. Unfortuanately, I was very disappointed. It's basically just an old building. Ususally there is a trail to walk on, but the last thre times I have stopped by, it has been closed. If you want a place to sit and have a quick lunch or bathroom break, then... More
