Hidden Lake Garden is a 755 acre garden with arboretum, trails, conerservatory and brand new canopy walk. Put on your walking shoes and get ready for adventure. You will park and walk along a gravel trail to the canopy walk that is best for walking and not stroller friendly. The canopy is 65 ft above the ground and has viewing structures to stop and take in the trees. The suspension bridge is 374 and has a slight give but it does not wobble.

If you’re looking for more fun in the area, here are a few suggestions:

The Corner Park is 15 minutes away and is full of summer fun. Let the kids climb on the playground, bounce on the jumping pillows, cool down on the splash pad and have a ball in the pool. Admision is $8 per person or $30 per family. This is a great community space that open Mondays – Saturday and is fun for the entire family.

GetAway Bay is located right off 23 and a great beach with an inflatable waterpark. Daily admission is $12 per person or $25 for the family. The waterpark has additional fees based on hourly usage.

Wilson Park i also located off 23 and a great place to keep it simple and enjoy summer. Located in downtown Milan the splash pad steals our hearts because of the adorable elephant fountain. It’s free and easy to access.
