Our kids aged 12 and 7 loved it. We attended a small magic show which was great. There is kids old time favorite songs and Disney music that plays in the park. The park is a free attraction.

Super fun park! My two grandsons ages 4 and 3 loved it! Lots of climbing, exploring and slides. There's even a fun little train ride for a fee. The best part was the park is free (with the exception of the train ride)! It was a hot day in July when we went and the park was not crowded at... More

This is the best place that you never knew existed! We only had an hour to spend here, and our daughter ran to everything. She loved this place. This is also a photographer's paradise. BRING YOUR CAMERA! I would drive all the way to Rapid City just to go to this place! And that's saying something. It's 10 hours away!... More

Even my 8 and 11 year old enjoyed a short stay and it's free. They both enjoyed the Bedrock, however, they liked this just as much if not more and without the $40 charge to enter. Well worth the stop after spending hundreds of dollars per day on the rest of the stops.

Yound and old will appreciate what I'm sure was once a fabulous, magical place for kids. It's a nice, fairly quiet wonderland of vintage Disney character sculptures that makes you miss simpler times. Add to that swings (who doesn't love a swing) and free admission, this is worth a stop along a roadtrip, if for nothing else to say you've... More

Great place for the kids to run around for awhile, and a decent number of benches for grandparents to sit & watch. Can't beat the price - FREE!

Always used to go there when I was a kid. Costs zero dollars to get in and is loads of fun. There are playgrounds, statues of your favorite cartoon characters, and much more. If you have little kids and are looking for something to do come here, for a memorable experience.

If u have kids 10 and under u must go here. It gives them a chance to run off some serious steam. The place is neat and clean as can be and most wonderfully, its FREE! Lots of shady sitting areas and a special area for 5 and under though the whole park is accessible for all ages. Absolutely wonderful.

Our kids are still at the right age to enjoy a tour. It's all dated but very well maintained and clean. the Grounds are well groomed and it's pretty family friendly. Use the washrooms inside the park, not at the entrance.

This is a great place to take your small children. And it's FREE! If you are in the Black Hills for vacations you will be shelling out $, so this is a nice stop that's fun and free. Lots of room for kids to run and play and get out of the car from traveling. Very well maintained. My 2... More
