  • Recently enjoyed the Gardens with great-granddaughters, age 4 and 7. They had a fine time. But the park was not as well-kept as it has been in the past. Some features were in need of a good cleaning (for example, the Apple and Worm). Also, we ate at the Villa Pasta and Pizza, and it was in real need of a floor cleaning. Some of the flower beds were in sore need of attention (dead-heading and weeding). It seemed, too, that the musical backgrounds were pretty loud. All this being said, the staff were helpful and friendly and the children had fun. I hope management will pay more attention to details.
  • Expensive for a small park when you combine the parking and entrance fees but it is a great park. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't horribly busy. Almost all rides have no age limit as long as you have an adult: my 2 year was able to get on everything. Many nature exhibits and the gardens and landscaping were the highlight for me. In the summer there are many water attractions to get the kids to cool off in. Will definitely return.
  • Our 3 year old enjoyed himself. Splashpad was probably his favorite. Glad we packed lunch since most food vendors were closed (on July 3rd) before noon, and the prices were ridiculous. Definitely a good place to visit with small children.
  • Good for young kids. Nicely maintained park. Not all staff is knowledgeable though and lack maturity. I have my doubts if some should even operate certain attractions. Once in a while they apply very creative measuring skills to determine who may go on a ride or they just don't know themselves.
  • Awesome place to take the little ones. A bit pricey, but luckily my work offered discounted tickets. Lots of rides for the kid. Bring a lunch or prepare to play alot for food and drinks there.
