“Fun little Train”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Well worth the trip out to the park. Fun little train makes you feel like a kid again, and yes, there are kids there too. Spend 20 minutes and go back in time with a real old fashioned train.

“Cute train, best at the holidays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This is a cute little train that takes you on a nice little ride around the park. It is especially great at Christmas time because they decorate the route with tons of lights, and it stops for kids to meet Santa. We got a great picture with Santa for $10 which is less than the malls around here charge. They also have an Easter event, but I've never been to it before. Check the website before going because they often have coupons you can print.

“Great for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

My son loves the train ride. It is short but just enough for a little one to enjoy. The tunnel is decorated according to the closest holiday. The train ride is narrated by someone in the back of the train who tells everyone about what they see along the way and the history of the park.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

What a beautiful setting with small lakes where you can rent paddle boats for $15/30 mins or ride little 10 min train $5. There are surreys to rent and bikes for the trails that wind through the huge park and plenty of picnic areas. Snack bar, clean bathrooms and pony rides as well . Beautiful area to relax and enjoy the outdoors
