Fun, beautiful, and historic all wrapped up into one. Love the carousel which has wonderful motifs painted on it. I rode the cat with the fish in it's mouth. The lake looks like its from a post card. There are some very large trees there, probably from the era the park was built. The vending had many local sources foods... More

Loved the fact that it has a variety of things for the kids to play on. My daughter loves the train ride around the park. I think that's the best feature for me!

This park has always been great & has gotten even better since the refurbishments. There is a good variety of playground equipment for various ages. The highlight is the carrousel & the train. There are also boats that go around in a circle for very young kids. The tickets for these three attractions are very cheap. There are also,pedal boats... More

This park is amazing! I've been on dates, with friends for an afternoon and of course with the kiddos. It is not your typical park and has a warm nostalgic feel. It's great for strolling, playing, picnics and BBQs. The playground is separated by ages for safety, they have kids' boat rides, a train, pedal boats, and a gorgeous old... More

Our kids are 3 1/2 and 22 months and they loved every minute of this little gem of a park. The train ride is long enough to do it just once, and cheap enough to do it a few times if there is not a long line. The playground areas are great for different age groups and the snack bar... More

Plenty for the kids to do and rides that are reasonably priced. Highly recommend it. The train ride is prob the most famous. There is also a small lake where you can go paddle boating. Other typical rides also. Also, a stage where kids can do karaoke. It's very close to the University Campus. Stays busy.

Marbles is a great place to enjoy yourself with the children. There are all kinds of things to stimulate children's imagination.
