    Great Location

    perfect stop with our puppy! they had a dog water fountain. They also have two gated/fenced dog parks so you could take the dogs off leash so they could run!! one for small dogs (under 30lbs) and one for large (over 30lbs!) The restrooms were clean and gardens beautiful. there was also a small playground for little kids. if you are driving RT 1 or 13 it’s a perfect little retreat easy off and on.
