Been here two previous times. Always positive experience. Took a first time visitor this October. Houses not open due to hurricane damage. Reduced admission fee and complementary admission for future visit. More than fair!

We finally got back to the park after a long time - my wife has told me about the banyan tree for years. A must see for the historical aspect alone! Recommended!

We had good time spending time near the river and talk about the surroundings. Very historic banyan trees. We wondered how many ideas were discussed in that area between Edison, Firestone and others.

As part of the Edison/Ford Estates... it is a great place to wander around and enjoy the views of the river.

Sorry, don't remember if the tour guide even told us. Tip, if you go take the guided tour, worth every penny.
