This is a quiet little area. Not to much was going on while we were there. We went for a picnic near the water part. It is very pretty and a nice area for walking leisurely. It's picturesque as well. There is a walkway down to the water with a whole bunch of different anchors to look at. Beautiful flowers are all around. There is a part behind parking, which is free, but I had my little one so we didn't go up that way. It is not to big but very pretty. Some parts would be difficult to get up and see if using a stroller but walking is fine. There is a dock over the water you can walk on. Someone was getting married in it when we went. Make sure to check for ticks as there are a lot of trees above!

This is a quiet little aquarium in the water. It is free to all Those that go. They do accept donations when you sign in. Bring some quarters for the parking meters as that is the most convenient parking choice. I do not believe they allow strollers , just to keep that in mind. There are public bathrooms inside that are kept tidy. It can get quite busy in the summer hours and is a small place. I like to go during the winter as it is open year round. On the first floor there are some tanks with a variety of different fish. It isn't too wild but is cool for young kids. They have a touch tank upstairs , where it is kind of behind the screens, which my son lives. It usually has starfish, snails, crabs, a fish and little plants. Bring sanitizer, as it only has plain water to wash your hands after. It also has the outside tank with two seals with steps so everyone can see!
My son is two and we have gone on and off since last year, it takes about a half hour to see, and enjoys it.
