  • This seems like a fantastic spot to bring kids, and honestly, even as an adult you can have some fun here. They sell beer, which is always a plus. Obviously it's geared towards children, but there are things like the carousel, train, and ferris wheel that adults can enjoy. I wouldn't necessarily go here without kids, but the train ride was pretty fun. It's nice that it seems very affordable for families.
  • About 15 different rides. $22 for unlimited rides. $4 for each ride. Good for kids
  • Kids got the unlimited ride band and had a blast. Looks like they could use s bit better upkeep.
  • I take my kids there almost every weekend! Love City Park and all it has to offer.
  • love bringing my girls here they always have a good time.
