This is a great place to take young kids! From the playground, to the train, and the Merry-Go-Round, there is something to keep everyone's attention!

Each ride is $1 which is very cheap. There are plenty of swings and slides and things for the kids to climb on. It has some things from when I was a kid that you don't see in parks any more like see-saw or teeter...More

We visited the park last year and enjoyed our visit so we thought we would go back and visit again. We rode the train, paddle boats, and was able to walk around and enjoy the beautiful park.

The highlight of this park, for me, was the classic 1911 carousel that was still operational and available for visitors to ride. It was so beautiful and so much fun.

We always have the best time here! Whether we're at a birthday party or just taking the kids ourselves. The train is my favorite.

Visiting this park shows you’re always young at heart. I went with my parents and we loved the train ride and the carousel. Didn’t order any food but it’s nice to have the option and the restrooms were clean.
