Nice and quiet on weekdays (unless there are group tours from local schools), but very busy on the weekends. Facilities and (multi-lingual information) displays geared towards families and kids. Nice short walks outside; but can get pretty hot during the summer months. Large crowd not conducive to serious bird watching (noise and crowded conditions) so avoid the holidays if possible. Worth taking the trip and spending a few hours there particularly if you can string together other attractions in the vicinity.
