Awesome! I have taken my daughter since she was little and now my little son(4) enjoys it too! For a family I reccomend the Japanese garden and the new My Big Backyard . My daughter always and (still does) loved the Japanese garden. It is large and tranquil. The major attraction is feeding the fish! Feeding is not allowed in winter, but in spring and summer buy a bag of fish food for a dollar. Its enough to last a while for 2 or 3 kids. This is the ONLY food allowed! There are so many large carp, that one drop of food causes about 7 to jump up and fight for it. Little kids should use the red bridge which has handles, and older ones can use the wish bridge which is zigzag ( no handles or bars) and provides a closer view. My son enjoys this too. My Big Backyard is a fun place geared toward the little ones. However my 12 year old daughter enjoyed the first look. There are small houses which focus on different senses like touch and sound. The clashing of cymbals can be heard from afar. Then the big treehouse has bridges, slides, and ropes. There are also mini exhibits like flower furniture and the floating bridge. Unlike a playground, it feels like a garden as well. Its beautiful with bright colors and funky designs. Leave the little ones on their own at the mini houses. Usually there are free camps and classes for kids yearlong. My kids always loved them. We even joined the races and I attended a wedding there too! But there is a lot for you to enjoy with your spouse or friends. Go to a quite garden ( there are many) and relax or take a hike on a quiet path. There are several benches scattered around. And if your bored waiting inside for someone, take the path opposite the main path to the Gardens. There are cool museum like exhibits and a nice window view. No concessions are usually available, but ask the people up front if there is a vending machine if you hungry. I can't remember whre it is.
St Paul Catholic School is one of the best educational decisions I have made for my girls. My 3 year old surprised me every evening with situations from talking about her new frieds, to her wonderful teachers, and the overwhelming amount of educational knowledge that I was unaware of that she had. Her scholastic achievements have far surpassed all expections that I had of her and her 1st school, St. Paul. My 9 year old daughter has not only been given the opportunity to receive exceptional studies in core subject areas, but she also receives daily instruction in religion/bible. As a member of the children's choir at St. Paul Catholic School, she has the opportunity to continue expressing her love and faith in God through song, praise, and worship. By enrolling my daughters in St. Paul, they are able to experience multi-cultures in a structured and nurturing environment while being exposed to an outstanding academic curriculum. My childrens education is my number one priority and I am delighted to have chosen St. Paul Catholic School as the foundation toward their academic success!
My daughter has been at St Paul since pre K she is currently in the 5th grade. I plan to keep her there through the 6th grade and if by a blessing from God they open up for 7th and 8th graders that is where my daughter will be. This to me is one of the best learning environment for any child. The school is very structured and the teachers as well as the principal pays close attention to each child there. They have a hands on atmosphere and keep in good contact with the parents. I love St Paul and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting the best quality education for their child.
