This is where it all comes together for group gatherings.

Various spots throughout the park—some natural, others manmade—offer groups of all sizes a place to get together and enjoy themselves. There’s several playgrounds and picnic areas. Not to mention larger settings like our Amphitheater, Education Building, Activities Building and the popular Butterfly Garden and Pavilion.
