Well maintained park, easy to park and nice walking paths. My dog loves it here. There is an entrance fee but seasons passes are available.

This is such a lovely park with appeal. There are 2 playgrounds for children, ball fields , a mini train, a small zoo...But the part that I love the best is walking around this beautiful park. It's a mile loop that is quiet and meditative.

This is a nice little park not far out of town. $5 entry fee but worth it if you plan to stay awhile. Probably good for kids since there are multiple activities for them. Or even a picnic. None of which we did but our hike was nice. Also, there's a 4-5 minute train ride you can take so that's... More

The drive up the mountain, winding road and very nice! The tower was high and affords an excellent view and great photo ops, too. It is windy and cooler at the top, also great view of the Ct. river!

There is a little bit of everything here, and most of it is either free or a nominal fee. You can picnic, pedal boat, see zoo animals and take a ride on a little train! The bumper boats were a huge disappointment though...it was just a small pool to float around in and not much fun :(

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
