  • This is a good park for kids and one of the best in the area. Kids love this place and it has many things to do. There are plenty of play objects like slides, swings, "blue mountain" to climb, etc. on one side of the park. The other side has a train ride that is open during the Summer months. Tickets for the train ride are very nominal and the kids always insist on multiple rides every time they are here. Parking is ample too with easy to access parking spots. They park does get crowded with kids when the weather is nice, so be prepared to wait for things like swings and slides. Good local gem :)
  • Beautiful Park, my daughter love it , you can find good entertainments for your kids, definitely I recommend it...
  • Excellent structure for a barbecue. We had a covered area with 3 tables. About 30 people without problem.
  • Visiting with 2 granddaughters ages 5 and 2. Carousel was wonderful as was the train. PB&J sandwiches in a pavilion and a trip to the natural sandbox and swings is so much fun.
  • We don't like how broken up the main area is with the wall and ramp. We don't come often anymore since it was redone because of the layout. Also, the ticket booth is out of 10 ticket booklets for $2 off - but instead if selling 10 tickets for the discounted price, they are selling them at full price. We bought fewer rides because of it. Poor customer service there.
