This place is awesome! With free parking, free entry, and free tours, it's very hard to find something to complain about. We searched ahead online, and easily found the hours of operation, and activity schedule.

no pets are allowed I believe there is a sign posted. the best time to go is early in the morning as it's cool out and they flock to the warm water around the facility. it is a great outdoor activity you can pack a picnic basket and have lunch on one of the picnic benches or under the beautiful trees. there is also a cafe in the facility that you can purchase simple food and drinks. definitely a place to visit hope you enjoy
