Great place to take the family. The prices are great and the family time is immeasurable. The restoration of the park is great. They add something new every year and it just gets better. Take your family friends and out of town guests for a good time.

Love to take the grandkids there for the carousel, the train ride, the ducks, etc. And the 4th of July with live music during the evening followed by the great fireworks is superb.

The recent few years of renewing this park have been amazing! It is a wonderful place for families! Boat rides, miniature golf, amusement rides, it has it all!

Went with wife and daughter. We loved the paddle boats. (Bring a cushion hard on the butt) my daughter especially liked the the carousel. I think we must of rode it a handful of times if not more. A lot to do in a small area. Would recommend.

We go there often, with the kids and grandson. The grandson, is 3 1/2 years old and loves some of the rides, but really loves playing putt-putt.

I lived in Elmira for a decade, so my review is biased toward nostalgia. When I was little, Eldridge Park was an amusement park, and going there was a big deal for me. Then, the park was closed for many years. It is very heart warming to see it open again. Of course, I have to go and support Eldridge... More

Not just seasonal, though the rides and events are summer only. It is still an great place for bike rides, and walks with kids and creatures! I like to stop and watch the skate boarders do /try their skills! In the summer there are always events and rides and concerts! Lots of great family entertainment on a tight budget!

The fastest carousel, paddle boat rides and a beautiful park setting. Many things to do in Elmira. Be sure to visit the John W. Jones House across from the cemetery.

Or at least it felt like an old time park until it was invaded by 100's of Pokemon playersI In spite of it all the merry-go-round (I caught the brass ring!), the mini golf, the paddle boats, etc were all good. nice place to bring the kids on a sunny day.
