My daughter goes to a great private school and they take the kids here on a yearly trip. I have gone on this trip for the last three years and fully enjoy this place. It's interactive and a great bit of exercise.

this place isn't really large but there was a lot of interesting information to learn and very well done displays showing animals and nature. The nature walk was very beautiful with a large variety of birds, fish and flowers to look at.
