  • I love, love, LOVE this place. Especially during the holidays. The light show and just the music and ambiance takes you away from the city even though you're in the heart of it. One of my most favorite places in the area!
  • Our neighborhood park. Miniature golf, carousel, food winter beer park, great children's park. Great city park!
  • Fun park in the city. Miniature golf, carousel and playground. Fun for all.
  • One of Billy Penns four pre-designed squares. It's a great area to sit and relax or there's is a nice carousel and mini golf course to make it a fun family destination.
  • My 2 year old and I had a great time! He loved the merry-go-round, the Square Burger and cake shake, and I was pleasantly surprised that there was a playground. I wish we'd gotten to go to the Chinese Lantern Festival, because the decorations were beautiful! This would be a nice place for a laid back date night. :)
