We hadn't been in years. It's a bit of a drive for us, but well worth it. Easy to get parked (out of season, I imagine it would be busy on a hot summers day). Nice to see a cafe had been built since our...More

What an excellent place to go to with your family. Keeps kids amused for hours. However if having a picnic make sure the you keep the food wrapped unless you want to try it with sand.
