“A nice hike through the area”

We didn’t see much for animals as it was very hot, but this was more than worth the $5 entry fee. A nice boardwalk hike, and we’ll maintained grounds.

“disappointing”

Had my 3 grands in town and it was disappointing that they didn't see much here. Thank goodness it didn't cost much.
