The main attractions include a garden of butterflies and bugs, a petting zoo complete with prairie dogs and tropical birds, an ice world with a frozen bed and ice slide to play on, a water tunnel of fun in which you’ll positively get soaked, and much more. The park also has a kaleidoscope workshop where little ones can make their one kaleidoscope, and another teaching the art of making handmade shishi (shisa) dogs, a mythological creature that supposedly wards off evil spirits. There’s so much to enjoy, you’ll run out of time before you run out of things to do! Join in other fun activities while learning stone art, garden combing, natural dying, how to press flowers, and more.
