Fun for all - fabulous!

Great fun for all ages. The Science exhibits were interesting, hands-on, and engaging for children and parents! Such an unexpected and delightful outing that was free!

The science center and the carousel were both opened, however the main playground was closed. We have two toddlers and this was a lot of fun for them. I think as long as your child can walk around they will be interested in the things to see. Great for 2-3 hours.

we go there for all the Cobra sports offered to kids but the park itself has plenty to do. The carousel is nice and the playground which is being refurbished right now was fantastic

They have several indoor pickle ball courts that are very bright and clean. I really didn't survey the whole park. They also house the Willow Theatre which puts on very good theatre.

Fun place for children and fun place for adults too since all can ride the old carousel! The playground is wonderful and the walks around the park are relaxing.

Whether you are attending a game at the ball fields or letting the kids play in the playground (closed for renovation until spring 2016) or visiting the children's museum, this park is wonderful.

wonderful place to entertain children from baby to 13 - great park, carousel and hands-on museum - all enclosed, clean and safe. The parking area is patrolled!
