I love that that they have free movies on Monday nights in the summer. It was a great way to spend an evening. It was a little tricky to see the screen until the sun went down.

Great little destination for a turnaround if riding bike from downtown. Respite from traffic. Road within park is a little bumpy. Light traffic. Dedicated trails for pedestrians but many on road running. Couple little hills for a good work out. Road (1020/southern Pkwy) from downtown is a great newly paved road to get there if staying at hotel downtown.

We went there a couple years ago (with our 4yo & 6yo) to see their pumpkin carving "tour" (can't recall what they called it, now) but it was AMAZING!!! Very impressive art work. We enjoyed it quite a bit.

A gigantic area for picnics, get togethers, and family reunions, close to shopping and food areas. Attend the free shows in the Ampitheatre or just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet on the park benches.....

I like taking my kids there because the playground is very nice and in good repair. Unfortunately, the plumes of smoke from the gangs of criminals with neck tattoos puts me on high alert, not that my kids will be stolen as much as someone from my family with get "shanked" by a local. Unfortunate, because the place has a... More

This was amazing. I took my 7 year old and three teenage girls, and they all were absolutely amazed. I had read there were thousands of Jack-O-Lanterns, but until you see it, you cannot imagine it.

My wife and I waited for over an hour to view this. It was truly not worth it. First and foremost, selling beer? There are kids and infants all over the place and you are selling alcohol? That is just a disaster waiting to happen as well as beyond irresponsible. Second, there are so many people let through at a... More

Wow!! Great carvings! I hoped it would be worth the wait as we went early and still stood in line for over 2 hours. It was definitely worth it. Incredibly talented folks did these carvings. Very cool with the music signaling the shift in time during the walk. A little pricey but it was very cool. Glad we did it.

This was a neat festival for the whole family. My biggest complaint was parking. We ended up having a 15 minute walk back to the festival, where we waited in line for over an hour to get in. It would've been nice for those who purchased their tickets online to have been able to get in without standing in the... More

This is AWESOME!! The artists that carved these pumpkins are VERY TALENTED. If you have a Thorntons card you get a discount. We are not from there so we do not have one so I'm not sure of how much the tickets are with the discount. People have complained about the cost of the tickets but if you go and... More
