I would rate this park about a 4.5...it is a beautiful park with many different attractions for all ages. The prices of a couple of the attractions are a bit high, but we happened upon "half price Wednesdays" last time we visited, which was a treat. Love the paddle boats and the playground, which is nicely shaded next to the... More

I too have memories of swimming in the big Look Park pool which is no longer there. The water spray area, bumper boats, mini-golf, and beautiful grounds are great. Streams running through the park and benches are a plus. A minus is dearth of toilet facilities. Signs pointing to activities and picnic sites abound, but we never saw a sign... More

We live in the area and go here often, every weekend actually. It is so lovely and peaceful most times. Terrific views, great areas to picnic and lots to do. Give it a try!

We visited the park with our two year old grand-daughter so she could play in the Water Splash Park; it was her second visit this month. It was well worth the $7 parking fee just to see the joy on her face waiting to see which fountain would start next. She thoroughly enjoyed the park, as did all the other... More

As a child in the 60's, I spent many years visiting Look Park. I have such good memories there. I spent a lot of time in the old swimming pool. I now visit with my grandson. Although it has changed, it is still a beautiful park and is a perfect place for families. There are many places to walk. The... More

It's a great place to take children at Christmas they have a train & more. The summer is not the only time that it's fun. Also on Easter they have an Easter Egg Hunt for children I believe under 12. Very cute Family oriented.

Gorgeous park! Lots of places to walk, picnic, they have a cafe/food stand and spray park in the summer. I like to find a tree to lay a blanket out under, relax and people watch

Stopped here after looking at their website and seeing how much there is to do. There is a small parking fee (i think $5)....mostly everything inside also has a fee, but nothing is expensive. The mini golf course needs some SERIOUS remodeling. It looks like it's about 25 years old and never had any upkeep. Weeds growing, very dull. Inside... More

And it is economic. Parking is $5 on a week day. For $15, you get a wrist band for the kid for unlimited rides, including chocho train rides, bumper boats, peddle boats, a petting zoo, and a mini-golf. And they are pretty lax for companying adults not having to pay for the rides - most rides would need a young... More

Haven't been to park in many years until recently when we went for a group outing with family. Park is very clean and well run. $7.00 a car to enter and if you want to use cooking site/areas it cost additional. Enough to do to keep everyone happy for a few hours and we felt very safe letting the kids... More
