Went with my Grandchildren during the summer. My Grandson played with the vintage outdoor toys forever! He loved it! Trying to keep him away from picking the produce was the tricky part!

Fun place to walk around, see a few animals & the way of life of grandparents. Perfect place in the city for kids to burn off energy and learn a few things without knowing. Little cafe with amazing biscuits.
