Free - goodwill offering! Great place for children to run. Love having my boys tell me the nursery rhyme that went with the characters. Didn't look at concession prices so I am not sure how those rate. You cannot being in your own food or beverages (understandably) but they do have some picnic areas along the water outside the park... More

I wasn't sure about going here at first, but was very glad we chose to. Our children had fun for hours playing on all the structures. Our children place it in the top 3 things they did on our South Dakota trip and we did many things so this says a lot!

Neat little place for the kids to play and burn off some energy while on our trip. No admission fee, but has a "suggested donation" box as you enter. Lots for the kids to do/see, and plenty of places for the adults to sit and relax, too. Would recommend to anyone with young children.

Nice stop for parents that have young kids that need to run around and get some energy out. Even though I don't have kids this was a fun stop for me as we had been traveling all day and I needed a place to walk and stretch my legs out. This was a nice place just for that too.

You need to bring you kids here, They will love it, it covers a lot of the story book tales. Best of all it's all free, except a train ride and that's $1.00

This is a playground really I didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. It was a lot of fun and even thought most of the people around us were kids it was so worth it to do as a older adult also we were both in our late 20s early 30s and we had so much... More

This is a cute park for younger kids -- under age 9. My kids are a little older, but they still enjoyed walking through the park, remembering storybook characters. I liked how the park admission was free but donations are welcomed. I hope this park gets the donations needed to stay operable. It is very unique!

If you are in the black hills with young kids you must visit this place. It is WAY better than I expected plus it is free. (There is a donation box and I would suggest you donate at least as much as the suggestion, if not more. Without donations these places cannot exist). The kids had an absolute blast. There... More
