Many years ago this was a family retreat outside town. Now it's right in the middle; however, the peaceful nature has been preserved. Great place for families and children to learn about nature.

This place is excellent if you a lover of nature. They have so many things to see. I think you can even have a wedding here.

Attended a family member's wedding here. Bar and dancing in the pavilion, and dining in the nature center building. Perfect for a fall wedding! Can't wait to return to browse the grounds at leisure. A real gem.
