My expectations weren't very high. I figured we'd spend maybe 5 minutes there looking at a couple run down fairy tale figures. We were pleasantly surprised. Just the amount of characters is impressive. They seemed to be well taken care of. Some features looked better than others, but my 3 girls (7 and under) all found it to be a... More

My kids (7 girl & 9 boy) enjoyed going here. Super cute and free entrance. We did buy ice cream, merry go round and train train tickets but I thought it was worth it to support this park

I have been visiting this park since I was little. There are props like Dr. Suess, 101 Dalmations, Cinderella, Snow White, giant pumpkin houses, jack and jill slides, old woman who lives in a shoe, train rides, now a carosaul that makes this park a fun and enchanting place

Not pet friendly but great park with bridge & flowing water to walk them right there. Such great photo ops. Our 7 $ 3 y/o daughters needed this stop to just run & blow off energy.
