this park, while great to visit all year round with a large pond where you can feed the geese, long horns and buffalo to see as well as an amphitheater, old castle building with tunnels to drive through and playgrounds for the kids, it is even better during the holiday season. The city crews spend many hours decorating and lighting... More

Krug Park is a classic old city park built back at the very beginning of the 20th century -- very large (160 + acres) buildings with ornate architecture, nice shelter houses, miles of hiking/biking trails, a very small zoo, rose gardens . . . the picture of Victorian opulence. It also presents a problem for city maintenance, in that the... More

Having seen Krug Park several times a year for nearly 30 years I can say I know it in and out, and have seen countless changes over that time. After moving away for several years, however, I was able to bring back someone who had never seen it before helping give a fresh perspective to it. So with fresh eyes,... More

As a child we would go to this park on many a Saturday for our family picnics. We moved from St. Joe many years ago, but now 50 years later I still enjoy the drive thru the park and the relaxing atmosphere it brings as we come back on vacations. It is a must go to when I am in... More

This park had a few animals for the kids to see and some equipment for the kids to play on as well as a lake. A nice drive on a One Way road.

Krug Park has been a part of my family for many years. My grandfather was a brick mason and helped put up the first stone fence at the base of the pond. It is no longer there being replaced many years ago. Krug Park also was where we went for family reunion picnics. The bowl is naturally. It has been... More

People from the St. Joseph area love this park. That said, if you are from any other area you might find yourself wondering what all the hype is about. Krug Park is a strange place with its castle-like buildings and tunnels (It has a very interesting history actually). As far as a park to play with your family it is... More

We visit friends in St. Joseph at Thanksgiving every year and as a tradition we take a drive through Krug Park to see the Christmas lights. It is always a wonder. This year the park went with more LED lights and the displays were beautiful. At the end of the park as you are leaving people hand out Cherry Mash's.... More
