Visitors also enjoy the Heritage Community Gardens and the Kid's Garden, artifacts and scenic walking trails througout the beautiful 71-acre park. Even your dog can enjoy its time at the Sacajawea Center in the Seaman's Dog Walk and Play Area where you can't miss the bronze statue of Seaman, Captain Meriwether Lewis' Newfoundland. You'll want to stop in the Visitor Center to view interpretive exhibits and artifacts that focus on Sacajawea.
