The Interpretive Center was given a magnificent makeover in February 2020, and then Covid struck. Since then it's been open and shut down a couple of times, so take advantage of the fact that it's open now.

The exhibits are a combination of touch and don't touch; live and taxidermic --- with something for everyone. Don't miss the turtle island!

The gift shop has adorable $2 badges to mark life's adventures with sentiments and illustrations like, "I gave blood," (mosquito); "I went bird watching" (binoculars); "I saw a racoon" (cute racoon); etc, There are other reasonably-priced souvenirs for children -- t-shirts; stuffed animals; and so on.

Out on the grounds, the Haunted Trail is set up (and still being added to) with non-scary Halloween tsatskehs.

The Kendicott house has a lovely garden maintained by local volunteer gardeners.
There 's also an outhouse with a crescent moon on the door. Don't think I didn't count all 30 steps from the kitchen back door to the outhouse.

See my earlier reviews ( July 7, 2020; May 5, 2018; June 21, 2015 -- page 12; and June 22, 2014 -- page 14) for more information.

Build a tall wood fence or grow thick living fence of junipers or other evergreens at the entrance to stop horrible noise from Milwaukee Hwy and 294 Hwy. Stop destruction of remaining bushes and trees and start GROWING them in every empty areas to make the Grove look like a forest again . Most important where houses and cars are visible from the center of the park . Empty the ponds of the dead trees, branches which choke them. Poor water in the pond near the museum so little critters living in it won't die like this year

Definitely a hidden jewel on the Northshore . Be prepare to walk down trails , lost a little bit but finding the history of the 1800s . Some of the most peaceful and gorgeous scenery that you will see . Be prepared to sit at one of the many benches and take in the beauty . Plan on staying at least a few hours , bring some water and enjoy !

In this review, I'd like to focus on the 16' Trail Marker Tree Sculpture by Dennis Downes. It was installed west of the Interpretive Center, near a trail intersection.

As the donors hoped, when I first saw it, I wondered if it were real.

Trail markers were early versions of road signs. They were created to mark paths through our Lake County forests -- pointing the way to villages, ceremonial and hunting grounds, sources of water, etc.

Trail trees were made by bending and tying saplings so that they would grow horizontally. Oak, elm and maple were traditional choices because they are flexible when young and hold their shape. These markers were not only highly visible in vertical forests, but could be seen above our Midwest snowfalls.

Part of the plaque near the sculpture includes a description of local burr oaks written almost a hundred years ago -- "....old portage trees of this species, bent down by the Indians a century or more ago, in their sapling stage, to mark the canoe carries from one of the slow historic rivers or lakes to the next...."

See my earlier reviews (June 2014, June 2015, and May, 2018) for more details of this remarkable place.

Was at the Grove in Nov 2019. Even though the weather was a bit uncopperative, the event at the Grove could not have been better. Very nice quiet area. You felt like you were in a rural area, not where the Grove is located. Wonderful staff,easy parking, great venue for events, nature apprecviation etc.

While Christmas shopping last week, I had a chance to stop at The Grove for the first time. I was happy that the sign along Milwaukee Avenue was clear regarding where to turn from Milwaukee Avenue. What a quiet and tranquil place to visit during such a busy time of the year! The outside of the Redfield estate is lovely! Even on this cold December afternoon, it was lovely to be surrounded by nature. The beautiful holiday lights added to the beauty. There was free available parking.

A forty plus acre parkland with magnificent treescape and magical open spaces shared with strolling paths. We are fortunate to have this wonderful park in our midst.

You get to see the Redfield estate and view the collection of turtles, fish and the opossum the staff saved. There used to be a holiday sale but sadly, no more.

We took the grandkids for pioneer days a land they had a blast. Only thing that sorta ruined the idea of showing kids nature and the past, was the insistence of someone having wedding pictures done, which seemed out of place.
