It was a really beautiful collection of plants. Even there is a nature vlass for young children. Good things to do to keep children busy and help them to learn while adult enjoy themselves.

This is a great place to drop in to learn more about the area. I found this place when I wanted to learn more about the trails and appreciated the map. Also a good place to start your forest hike ... they have clean restrooms!
