This is a very nice facility there were lots of rooms for behind the scenes organization before and as the event I was helping with was going on. The grounds are well maintained feel open and safe you're in nature but not in the woods. And the building hide good lighting and lots of open space for people to mingle. This would be an excellent wedding venue or family reunion. Is plenty of parking too so if you have a crowd or lot of people you don't have to worry.

We rented some bikes. Trail was good, nice play ground and splash sone. Need some work on the bikes, that's only the reason why they don't get a five star.

We came for the Christmas lights and were very impressed with everything. The light display was amazing. The activities at the nature center were fun and plentiful. The snacks and fire for marshmallow roasting was great. It was a very nice evening with the family.
