Kid friendly. You can easily push a young child in a stroller on the many trails through the park. Enjoy feeding the geese and deer. Park admission is free. Also have great cross country ski trails in the winter.

Unique spot- we stayed for an hour and didn't see it all! The work they are doing here is incredible and all the animals seemed happy. Bring $1 or $2 cash so that you can feed the ducks and deer corn!
