We were here for a Cycling event but I walked the whole area and park and thought, "what a great place for a family to spend the day". They had an old recreated town and train station with historical buildings, homes, and the real deal with the trains. They operate on weekends from around 10AM to 2 PM. The fee to ride the train is only a few dollars for adults and less for kids. The picnic areas are beautiful and spacious--there were several birthday parties happening that afternoon. The area surrounding the park is in keeping with the historic theme all built with that "old town" look, even if they aren't that old. The park is kept in pristine condition by volunteers mostly and they have many family and historical events listed year round--especial for the kids. These were the cleanest, nicest public restrooms I've ever seen.
