Took 11 & 14 year old here & they enjoyed walking around the gardens & doing some of the outdoor activities. Love the spring flowers blooming this time. We really enjoyed the greenhouse & feeding koi. Love to come back & visit during different seasons.

When our kids were little it was one of their fun places to go. The grounds are beautiful and usually very quiet unless there is a group of some kind. The fish pond in the green house is an awesome place no matter what the weather is. Great selection of plants and great ideas for gardening. The workers are helpful... More

We love visiting the 577 Foundation, walking the grounds, and playing with their music equipment. It is a great place to spend a few hours with kids 2-8 years old and adults who like to garden. There is no cost to roam around and play.

What a great place to spend a few minutes..or hours..either alone or with others. The geodesic domed greenhouse, community gardens, old log cabin, pottery studio, nature center, used book library, arboretum and river walk are pure joy. A changing variety of classes and workshops for people of all ages keep me coming back !

A summer field trip often means navigating crowds and dashing from exhibit to exhibit. The 577 Foundation is a chance to slow down and enjoy an hour or two of the day, while enjoying the outdoors. My nine-year-old and I visit to take pottery classes (highly recommended!) and also to enjoy the various things to do. Highlights for him: The... More

This is a lovely property offering walks, river view, and many plant species. The greenhouse/pond is wonderful all year round - look for the toads. The children's playground is also a delight. Love the pottery and other class selections!

You can always scan the used book building available for discounted prices. Craft, cooking, and card making classes. Area for pottery making class and garden spots. A great variety to explore and plan. Almost always something going on like nature and organic information and adventures for children included. Love this place, small but packed with so much to learn and... More

We came here for a mom's group get together and it was so much fun for the kiddos to run around, explore and play! We ate our lunches in the picnic area and really enjoyed the scenery and nature. Will return1
