Perfect for a couple of hours
This is one of my favorite places in Flagstaff, but I'm a member so I may be biased. We bring our kids here when they are bored in the afternoon. They like the pond, peter rabbit's garden, and just playing around outside.
The bird's of prey exhibit is also a great thing for kids age 6 and up.
It's also a great place to enjoy the outdoors for folks who are not so active. The trails are easy, with good footing and the displays regarding the local flora are very informative. We always bring the kids' granparents here when they visit and everyone has a good time.
