This is a nice place to take a walk. Well behaved pets are allowed. They hold special events through out the year. There is an educational center / museum. There is a permanent display of sculpture along the tree covered trail as well as a children sanded play area.
Wished we lived closer to visit more and do the many art classes/workshops. Love how nature and art come together. Lots to see during your peaceful outdoor walk. Great for kids. They have a craft room where you can do a free craft, was expecting something for very little kids, but they had a neat craft for older people making flowers out of old plastic soda bottles. If you have the chance you must go to the holiday lights, it is so pretty to walk through a lit up woods at night. No feelings of being rushed by the car behind you, just walking at your own pace. Different sections had different themes, most not Christmas themed, but still very pretty and creative. They had a live band inside playing traditional Christmas music. The gift shop is nice.
I wasn't able to spend enough time there but the walk thru the woods with the interesting sculpture wad great fun.
Great place around the holidays for experiencing the "Garden in Lights" for children and a wonderful exhibit year-round full of local artists' work.
Well worth the visit. Had a few friends who are sculptors visit so took them here and they couldn't get enough.
