Had my son's 8th birthday here. Mine kids loved it and all we had to do was bring food! If you don't want to pay to reserve a pavilion, be sure to get there early to stake out a few tables.

We love the idea and design of this park, but we have serious security concerns about it. There are always large numbers of children, with too many areas where they are not easily supervised. We have heard disturbing rumors of unattached/unrelated adults in some of the underground areas, attempting to contact children. Not going back without significantly lower kid/adult ratio.

We live close to this park so naturally this is where we take our 4 year old. There are plenty of things for her to do. I think the park is about 4 years old and although some of the stuff is showing some wear - everything is in good working shape. Sometimes it is too crowded. That's not the... More

My 5 YO granddaughter just loved this playground. this attraction. It had equipment and activities you don't see in other facilities and it is FREE. My grandchild cried when we had to leave at closing. Next time I am in the area I will build in more time to visit

We were in Lakeland yesterday, so we decided to stop by and check out this park. It was wonderful! So many interactive things to do for kids of all ages. My daughter & nephew are only 1 year old, but they had a blast. There were plenty of things for them to do. All the park equipment looks new and... More

Could not believe this park. There are many areas in the park for kids to explore. There is a sand play area, swings, and a huge spider web climbing area.

This is the best place to take children 12 and under outside a local theme park. And it's free! Bring a picnic! The children in your life will thank you!

My children and I enjoyed this park. The only problem was went during the hottest part of the day. We didn't stay too long, but we really enjoyed the fun we had while we were there.

I love bringing my son here to play. Lots of things to do and play with. It's also designed beautifully! Very large playground with nice equipment and lots or areas to play. Only down side is that it could use more places with shade areas to sit in. But otherwise it's a great place to visit! I plan on revisiting... More
