For those of you who have been there, do you really like the Shakesphere Garden display of tiny houses? I wish they would change it, it's been there too long. I wondered through it twice but after the first time I was bored.

I know what you mean maybe swap it out for a mini golf course or something interactive.

I think the historical teachings and values out weigh adding another park when there's already several

I love it!!  It's a quiet place to stroll and reflect.... the little buildings and gardens are very quaint. I've been many times, and enjoy it a lot every time I go!!  The rest of the park is so busy & active that this is a really nice place to find a little calm :)

I haven't been there in years but, I do remember the "village" from when I was a young child! I think it is lovely. The last time I was there some things were a bit more run down than I would have liked to see.


I think it is wonderful. I agree it can be used as an educational tool and a nice place to just go relax. A mini golf may be more active but, it is not nearly as intelectually stimulating.

If they could incorporate the buildings into a golf course it would please both opinions :) I loved the garden but it was upsetting how the buildings are in disrepair. it's such a nice little break from the rest. I don't really like the way their animals are cared for though and it makes me hard to justify going there.
