  • Park was busy. Thought it would be bigger, but 2 Dollar for the train ride is okay. I guess it is very popular with younger kids. My 7 year old enjoyed the playground though.

  • I love this little park! There's a lot to do and a lot to learn. My two year old is fascinated with anything automotive so the trains are a big hit. It's a great park to hold events at too. I did my first baby shower here. I see people doing birthdays all the time. There's a mini train ride (I think three and under tickets are free) and a carousel.
  • The museum wasn't open on the day my family checked out this park, but the carousel, train ride, and playground were more than enough fun for my three year old. I thought the train was an especially nice example of the breed, with a variety of interesting views (including a tunnel that thrilled all the kids), and running long enough to be satisfying but not so long that the little ones get bored. Bring a water bottle.
  • This was the first time to bring our 2 year old daughter. She loved it! We rode the train around the park, we went to a railroad museum and went inside a real train! We also road the carousel. The prices are very reasonable too!
  • If you love trains, this is the perfect place for you. There were train displays to look at. Not many hands on activities which was a little disappointing for me. Otherwise, this place is good for an outing.
  • What can I say? This place is BEYOND awesome. Rideable miniature trains, model railroad displays, museums, all encased in a great city park.
