A variety of natural history interpretive programs for community and school groups are available. The center has a fully-equipped recreation room available to rent for meetings and special occasions.Â
Great free outing for kids. They have animals to view and pet and very friendly and helpful staff. The space can be rented for birthday parties, although it is, truth be told, a slightly dreary building. There's a nice huge playground outside as well. My favorite part is the courtyard with a pond with turtles and fish in it.
It's a cool place for the children to see animals. The only down side is there are not many animals. But the kids love it. The staff is pleasant.
nice wide open area. easy access to food entertainment and recreation. great walking path nearby. access to ghost and water type Pokemon. Pool nearby but I imagine its for residence only or you might have to pay a fee. mini-mall and big mall nearby to.
Ascending to 14,410 feet above sea level, Mount Rainier stands as an icon in the Washington landscape. Subalpine wildflower meadows ring this icy volcano while ancient forest cloaks its lower slopes. Created March 2, 1899, Mount Rainier is America’s fifth oldest national park.
Your child will never forget this gem. There overnight camping for kids is really good.
