  • A beautiful, large park with great playgrounds and fantastic flora and fauna. There are areas for flora and fauna. A small electric railway passes the entire huge site. Always a trip with the family value.

  • The Park is very spacious with a large lake, many green areas to the picnic or relax with a Petting Zoo, many playing facilities for children or just simply too to go for a walk. A highlight is the parking lights at the beginning of the year, here much light is set beautifully in scene, very much recommended.

  • The Grugapark with a few lights, so I had imagined. However, my expectations were exceeded lengths! I was delighted with the beautiful lighting and effects. Again and again!

  • Beautiful place, huge with lots of options for the kids. Loved the pony ride and the many play ground around. We'll be back soon here.
  • Beautiful Park with lots of different themes and places. Worth a visit, even in winter. Free parking at the entrance. Decent amount of security in the park to feel save, even when it gets dark.
  • Nice place with nice activities for family. Clean and well maintained thanks to the entry fee.
  • Very nice place to go with the family and have a whole day there ridding on the little train
