What a great time for kids AND adults!! Took our 5 and 11 year old boys, brought "paleontologist" tools (chisel, hammer, paint brushes and "specimen bags" (ziplock bags). We spent about 2-1/2 hours there and found lots of fossils. You don't have to dig or look hard, you can find them pretty much everywhere. But you can also make it more interesting with tools and magnifying glasses and brushes. Mom and Dad ended up exploring and searching for fossils, too. Engrossing, fun and rewarding. Don't forget your tools and a bag, your camera and water!!

Not just for kids! My husband and I had a great time picking through rocks and with the informative signs at the bottom of the hill we were able to find and identify several different types of fossils. If you love nature and history and have the patience to look around for a while don't miss this!

This is a neat place for any small one or anyone who loves rocks. It's an unusual gem in that it is in and behind a commercial park. With our 5 year old at the time it was a great hour long adventure to look through rocks and bring back treasures.
