They had a gorgeous light display for Christmas! It wasn't that cold the day we went but they had warming stations to take a break & to warm up, which we took advantage of!! They served hot chocolate & other beverages. I definitely would go back and recommend it to all my friends & family! 😊❤

Love this place, but I must say if you don't have a membership, it's a bit pricey. Totally worth it if you love nature walks and learning about the outdoors! Great place to bring the kids, and perfect for first dates! Usually pretty crowded during events though so plan ahead because tickets sell out quickly!

This is a national treasure. Beautiful walking and driving trails. Wish I had a few days exploring all the trees and bushes, many with identifying signs. Great place for bird watching, as well. Lovely in any season. Nice gift shop, too.

Great grounds. Peaceful escape from the rat race. Wonderful hiking trails. Taught both of my kids how to drive here. Great winding roads with a low speed limit. Pricey if your not a member but still worth it. Many programs for kids and adults. Wish they allowed bikes.

Love this place! I find very relaxing. Some paved areas to take a stroller, but lots of wood chip paths. Great kids area. The indoor grill/cafe has good options.
