This is the type of place that you have to stop by if you’re anywhere close because there’s just nowhere else like it! It’s cool to see and feed so many fish, ducks & other wildlife! A must for anyone with little kids (especially boys!)

I love this place and have been there many times. I loved it as a kid and still love it as an adult. It is fun to watch the fish eating bread and the birds as well!
