Beautiful park, gardens, little atrium to walk through and see different kinds of birds. You do have to pay $5 a car to enter but it's gorgeous with walking trails and playground... my whole family loved it.

We have been going here for years. Never a crowd. There are so many wonderful areas to have a picnic or to look at the gardens. There are several different garden areas and a small zoo. There is even a therapy garden. Enjoy.

Yes but the dogs have to be on a leash and you have to pick up after them. Also don't think they are allowed in the bird area.
