Activities like riding a paddle boat or the miniature train, playing putt putt, or strolling through the little zoo cost a small fee. A nice nature center & gem mining are also on... More

So neat, and so many things to do. Very affordable. I do wish they stayed open a little later. I would go here much more often but its about an hour and a half away. The paddle boats are great. This place makes for an awesome one day mini-vacation.

There are a couple of attractions - carousel, train ride, mining, paddle boats, mini golf. They have a very small petting zoo - animal display area. During the summer they have... More

This park is great fun for little kids! We take our nieces and nephews every time they are in town visiting! There is a splash pad, a little train, a merry go round, mini golf, treasure hunting, picnic tables, and lots of open spaces to play and have fun. The cost of the "attractions" is minimal and pay-as-you-go, so you... More
