My kids love to go there. There are ample parking spaces and playing area for all ages. Our favorite activities are cycling, playing soccer and kiting. And of course, my favorite is photographing bisons.Yes, they have well-fenced bison area.

We've been a few times. Highlights are the playground areas, which are really cool, different from the typical playground stuff. It also appeals to a variety of ages. Another highlight is renting a paddleboard or kayak. Easy, no experience required.
