I little gem in our city. I took my nieces and nephew and my bonus son here yesterday and they had the best time!! There were volunteers there walking around cleaning the area and a couple walking around w/ a bearded dragon.. I’d never heard of or seen such a thing, but they gave us a little education about it and let the kids pet it. The kids caught tadpoles in little fishing nets made available by the staff there for catch & release. It was a good time. Getting them out for fresh air and exploring nature was really nice. They had a good time, and so did I.

Very short, can walk whole/all trails within 30 minutes. Saw lots of lizards, squirrels and turtles. Nice get away from hustle and bustle of the city. It's also historical.
