Parts of it are just magical; the gardens, the topiary garden, the winding paths, the little surprises, the nature trails, and oh the beautiful stream with flowers and plants and trees and.... well, I just love it.
It is a unique garden experience with interesting gardens, a fascinating historic Manor House, a Butterfly House (open seasonally) along with a Nature Walk.

Start with a morning hike, then time for the kids to romp in the large playground, lunch at the snack bar, skating on the ice rink and then a game of tennis while the kids learn at the excellent nature center.
Park in free lots, wander around very pleasant waterside, attractive artworks, some world class architecture, very convenient dining.
