  • Oh my goodness! I can't wait to go back with my little boy now that the children's garden is open because it looks amazing. We biked here from Island park about a month ago. We stopped here because it looks so inviting. There's a theatre here, so that's fun. I'll have to do a little research to learn more about their season. But it would obviously provide for a lovely date night. The garden here is large, open and is planned out beautifully. You can also walk a wonderful little bridge/path over the water. Now my husband did get to return to the children's garden with our boy and the pictures he sent me are fantastic! There are musical instruments, a little pond and some adorable little chairs for the kiddos. Spring, where are you?!? I can't wait!
  • Hello Everyone, this location has the meanings of the definition of beauty. When you best go? Spring. Why? Every areas is decorated with gorgeously colorful flowers from each type you might think is there. The kids can play with the sand or can go to the water. I promise you, you will take the most wonderful pictures in you life.
  • Beautiful park, friendly to pets, and great for activities like the play house or the children's area. I love occasionally just walking through to enjoy the scenery. The benches on the water during summer when flowers are blooming create a wonderful experience. The parking lot and driveway have some potholes though and the bridge looks a bit worn down. I have many fond memories here though.
  • This is a great place to go and visit with family, especially if you have kids. The kids area is great, full of fun facts and a water play area. There are tons of paths to explore. There is even a place behind the main Playhouse parking lot where people fly planes and rockets. Spring and autumn are the best times for me, personally, to go. There is an area of formal gardens, a bog, and some reserveable areas. There is always something new to see.
  • Great little park on the north side of Dayton. When everything is planted it is absolutely gorgeous. There is a wooded trail that's approximately a mile long at the park too that is certainly worth a trip around as well. The trail is in an area that floods a bit so a good amount of the year the trail can be a bit muddy so dress appropriately!
