The park is really pretty and well-maintained. Our kids are a little older so not a lot for them, but I can see where younger kids would enjoy the play structures, etc. The rose garden was very pretty and picturesque ... we just enjoyed being outside and surrounded by lots of trees and manicured lawns and flowers.

We spent a little time in the rose garden. The flowers were beautiful and the garden was peaceful. We saw a blue heron fishing in a pond there.

Great for families. Picnic areas, zoo, rose gardens, train, merry go round, swimming pool and handicapped play equipment provide activities. Helen Hocker Theater and the band shell provide performances. Check with Shawnee County Parks and Recreation.

We stopped in here for just a little while so only got to see a small area of the park. The scenery was gorgeous; there were colorful flowers everywhere! We enjoyed walking around one of the ponds filled with koi fish. This park was very relaxing!

This was a nice, relaxing park with lots of flowers (the rose gardens were beautiful) and historical landmarks. The military section was very nice, with the Gage Park War Memorial stone. The surrounding monuments commemorate the locals that have served in the various wars through time. They have a small train for adults and children that gives a ride around... More

The park is very busy due to the school kids going to the zoo but I think that's the only reason it's busy. It is worn down with puddles and grass missing; the cement animals are dirty looking. It just needs thorough clean up.

Gage park is a beautiful park with everything a city park should have. A great way to see the park is to ride the train around the park. The 20 minute ride takes you all around the park. The engineer/conductor provides useful and historical information about the park during the ride. There is also a public swimming pool, rose gardens,... More
