We took a ride with our grandson and I was a bit disappointed. He of course being 2 was excited still the same but most of the ponds were empty. There were only about 5 viewing ponds. Maybe it depends what time of the year...More

Bring a picnic lunch and stay to enjoy the pools of fish, walks along the creek and ponds and the playground. The kids really enjoyed the fish bridge which is part of the playground set.

What a wonderful and inexpensive family outing. Buy a bag of fish food and feed the brook, brown, and rainbow trout. What a beautiful parklike setting. Pack a lunch or use one of their bbq pits and let the kids enjoy the playground.
