“Hidden pond is a beautiful place with lots of attractions for young and old. For families with younger kids, they have a nice playground, the nature center has animals and is indoors for very rainy days, staff on call to ask questions to, and for people of all ages, gorgeous trails. You can book a party room for some occasions such as a birthday party. The party room is very large, making it easy to easily host larger groups (we had 25 kids and 20 adults), they offer tables and chairs and two activities led by their staff: we chose an animal talk where kids learned about 4 animals and had an opportunity to ask questions/ touch a couple of them. We also chose pond netting which the kids love”
