I visited two times in six days while enjoying my son's baseball tournament. This park has something for everyone. Pack a large picnic basket and spend some time here. The walking trails near Clark Hall are perfect. What a magnificent park!

We attended a wonderful event at Glimmerglen as part of the Baseball Hall of Fame weekend. This was held in a large tent erected for the occasion.
