Absolutely a MUST SEE! No picture will do this place justice! You have to see it for yourself. And it's for a good cause, building playgrounds and spray fountain playgrounds. Who wouldn't want to support that? The most amazing art ever carved into pumpkins. Get...More

We visited the park expressly to view the jack o' lantern spectacular. It is a must see if you are in the area in late October. 5000 carved pumpkins make up this scene. It is well worth the price of admission!

Pack your time and you patience when you visit this once a year event. The price is expensive for a young family $$$. The event planning staff should consider only selling several thousand tickets per night. The way it is done is way too long...More

5,000 jack o' lanterns is a lot. Many were very intricate and amazing. At one point the jacks were up in the trees and over our heads. It was really incredible. This year's theme was "America the Beautiful." They had at least one pumpkin carved...More

It's a mess. Have to wait in a long long line of traffic to get to parking and then have to stand in another long long line even if you purchase tickets in advance online. Could be better organized then what it is.

If I'm going to Iroquois Park for an event, would it be better to stay in a hotel by the airport or downtown? Any recommendations?

personally i like the air port hotels better, they are closer to the park, and are newer, and have moor space for parking. downtown traffic can be hectic, with one way streets.
