  • Oh My Goodness.... Coming from the Rockford, IL Area, we have limited activities and this including both paid and free. So when I came to this place for the first time, I was blown away... There was some much for the kids to see and do with the animals and the many hands on experiences was amazing. Best part about all this, IT'S FREE!!!!....
  • Very great place to go for a fun day off or to explore with kids. Best thing is:entry is FREE! see and learn about animals, reptiles, aquatic creatures and lots more . Go early if you want to get a good parking spot. Otherwise you may just drive round and round and round till you return home
  • Spacious! Connected to the zoo! Located by a lake with a decent beach. Great for family events/ picnics. Plenty of parking everywhere. Fishing on sight as well. Opportunities everywhere.
  • A fantastic clean well kept park maintained excellently by the city. The park, the lake, the zoo, everything was clean, very friendly, and FREE! We loved our day here.
  • Nice area near the water. Good place for keg kickball or frisbee practice. Dogs not allowed though - heads up.
