We fed and petted a deer and I witnessed a small pack of relaxing wolves howl and howl. One of the best experiences.
This was our favorite stop. It was a perfect FREE place for the kids to explore and there was so much! Animal exhibits, play areas, trails, waterfall, duck feeding, hands on nature center. It was awesome. It felt like a mini-zoo.
So beautiful!! A lovely nature stop with lots of trail options short and long. A dollar for corn to feed the ducks in the bird sanctuary area. (Watch out for gimpy goose, he's not shy) The owls are fricking adorable and the birds of prey are so impressive to see up close. Also, lots of poke stops and gyms 😉
