Truly like taking a walk back in time to a beautiful carnival with the loud, bright colors and beautiful vintage rides. So simple; yet so pretty to look at! Kids had a blast & the skating rink was a huge hit with teenagers and adults!...More

Glad you had a good time! Our skating floor is actually a 100' x 200' antique maple with Roll-On coating. And we surely do have inline skates in several styles.

Yes. Well behaved, leashed dogs are allowed.
It is supposed to rain this Sunday. Are there any covered or indoor places for about 28 people for a picnic?

The Oaks has plenty of picnic areas and some shelters available for picnics. I am not sure what their policy is on renting. The park personnel are very nice and could assist you. :-)
