Great place to take kids, there is an area where children can pet various animals. Also good place for adults to walk, get plenty of exercise, there is also a historic house that you can tour.

Wonderful stone buildings, cool architecture, beautiful grounds, fascinating nature lessons and exhibits for children (including hands-on), families from 2 to 92. The Dooley mansion tour is not to be missed.

Loved all the animals and you can feed and pet them too.. A nice area to sit and have a snack is provided.
Plenty of place to walk and let children run. Great family place with awesome gardens and flowers, there is also an ice cream cart in the summer.. Love this place.

Having large grounds, one is never far from a fellow human playing, jogging, having family time, visiting the animals, simply strolling or enjoying the grassy lawn. The Japanese gardens are great to imagine being in Tokyo with all it's many stepping stones and pool of coi fish. There are bears, and otters, and plant life in abundance. There are trails all over the park, and lots of knolls to picnic on. Summer and spring would be ideal times to visit. Funny thing is you don't feel too lost and it's not terribly noisy... just right. There is no fee to get in, but a $ donation doesn't hurt and goes a long way if you visit their main mansion tour with lots of history.

Historic home, park, gardens, and small petting zoo. The home is well preserved and the guides are well educated in the family history and the home. The gardens are very natural and like those of the family that would live in this home. There is lots of paths to roam and outdoor beauty as well as the family petting zoo.
