This little park becomes a kids sledding venue in the winter. On the Saturday night we were there, a section was even blocked off for a snowboard on rails competition. I've seen markets set up in the park on other visits.

We headed up to Leavenworth after a snow storm due to the fact I missed northeast winters. The town was this perfect winter wonderland! The German town covered with a thick blanket of snow right after Christmas made this an amazing experience! Despite the cold temps we wandered through the town enjoying all the shops! I would recommend going to... More

This park is a beautiful must see. I mean, you can't really visit Leavenworth without seeing it as it is in the center of town. Not only that, it is brightly illuminated with all sorts of festive lights. The main draw of the park, in the winter, is the sledding. The hill is small and personally I would find a... More

You can get parking early in the morning but I would not take it because the traffic becomes extremely heavy very fast around this area and for a long time. Good luck getting out of your spot if you decide to park close. Not everyone wants to park there so very few let you out. Park across the street in... More

Leavenworth is a beautiful place. Set against the Cascade, its modelled as a Bavarian village. Its perfect during the Holidays to get the spirit of Christmas. Its fun just to take a walk along the Front Street looking at the local shops and their exhibits. The Nutcracker museum is a unique museum, my kids just loved it. I would love... More

It was all lit up for Christmas and had a short sled run with snow provided! The lights were a big attraction with trees covered in lights for the length of the park, about two blocks. Definitely worth the visit.

when you fist drive down the street it feels like you have entered Germany. The hill for the children to toboggan down the hill. the Christmas carollers singing. Santa and mrs Claus and the best the Christmas lights when it gets dark! Great day out for the whole family.

The whole park is just magical in the winter. There's so many lights on the trees (when in season) the park is lit so well at night you almost don't need to the street lights. It's pretty special to see. Being not-a-people-person, I recommend you visit this early in December, and mid-week. The lights go up and have to be... More

Father Christmas was so cool so was the snow for the kids. Christmas lights abound, it's easy to get the spirit of Christmas.
