Joy with Grandkids

A great place to take the grandchildren when babysitting and it is not beach weather. Fun for kids both indoors and outdoors.

We came thinking we could take a walk. The description alluded to trails. Not there. There are ball parks for soccer, baseball and a roller hockey park with basket ball hoops. Nice picnic areas but not much else.

Hi CTNYC! We actually do have a few nature trails, one behind our Children's Science Explorium and one across from the basketball courts. If you decide to stop back in, our staff would be happy to point them out. More

I have never seen a bigger "playground" than the one they have here! There's huge castle of crawl around/ play around stuff! Parent and grand parents can just sit and listen to the happy play. This is complimented by a huge athletic complex and a community center.

Went to visit the park with family from the Miami area only to find the playground closed. The closure isn't noted on the website which would have been helpful. Nice park, will try again in the summer.

The facilities are great, skate hockey, basketball and other indoor sports facilities are available. The park is always well maintained and of course the carousel is a nice touch.

Such a nice playground and the attached science center was a great inexpensive/free way to spend the afternoon. There is also a carousel that costs a little bit of money but otherwise everything else was free!

Seriously this park is so neat for young families! Great family day! There is a carosel that is $1 a ride, a new, huge climb on play area and a cute little science center room indoors where you can beat the heat! Definitely reccomend for a fun, inexpensive, family day!
