The children's play area is disgustingly filthy. Very few animals for the kids to see. The picnic areas seemed fine. I realize there is no admission fee but this park is in desperate need of some TLC.

This is a great park for the entire family. Larger than one may think. Great for bike rides a barbecue or a just a trip to the ice cream shop. The carosel and paddle boats are great for the kids. The dog park is always lots of fun. Our two dogs love it and get excited when we are within... More

Quiet, not overcrowded. The farm is not what is was in the day but a nice place to tire kids out. You cannot beat the Looff Carousel at 25 cents a ride (sit on the outside as this one is know for its speed).

Slater Park is larger than you realize. The last time I was there I went bicycle riding with a friend of mine. Lots of places for children to run and have fun. Don't know if it's still there but they always had an old-fashioned/historic merry-go-round available along with paddle boats.

My family and I walked through Winter Wonderland this Christmas with over 400 trees lit and decorated beautifully. The village and the carousel bring you back to olden days. How refreshing! I hope this continues year after year.

The best thing about the park in my opinion is the walking trail which borders a large reservoir where hundreds of swans float around in the summer. The winter will reveal a festival of Christmas trees, October has its pumpkin display and haunted tunnel and children can enjoy a petting farm, a historic carousel and a new playground.
