Come along this summer for a kid's treasure hunt, a dander around our property or even an audience with our resident bats. We have something for all ages and interests!

  • Launch your canoe from our landing platform
  • Have a picnic in the Rose Garden
  • Fly a kite in the Sandpit Field
  • Spot butterflies in the Meadows
  • Play pooh sticks at Minnowburn bridge
  • Take a stroll through the woods
