  • The kids and I were here on a cold rainy Sunday and had a blast, the train and carousel were operating plus the snack bar/BBQ were open as well. We went for a long walk to Vasona to check out the creek and skip rocks. All together the trip ended up being 3 hrs of fun, when it started out almost not happening due to the looks of the sky. We grabbed the rain gear and said "it's only water" and headed out. Thank you Billy Jones Wildcat railroad for (1) being open on a rainy day (2) keeping the Coco hot.
  • Amazing place for little ones! Train and carousel tickets just for 3$ each. There is also a huge playground area.
  • Super nice park, with aircraft you can come in and a train that you can pay to ride. However, very small parking and needs to pay. Also the playground is wide open which is dangerous for small kid. Still like it.
  • Awesome place for a 8-10min train ride, with a trail to hike, children playgrounds and lots of space to run. Tough parking though.
  • All ABOARD! This Park is b-e-a-utiful, $6.00 to park, only $3.00/per person to ride. Great park to take the kids or lover for relaxation... NO BANDITS ON THIS TRAIN, The only robbers on this train are the squirrels that want your acorns!!
