“Ride the train”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

What a charming park. There is a small open air train ride that the kids (and we) were excited about riding. There was a small fee, the conductor was very nice and we stopped to chat with workers inside the station where the large locomotive was. The day was beautiful. Highly recommend this very low key attraction.

“4th of July the way it should be.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Reenactments of the Gettysburg address, cannon firing, flags everywhere, music in the Gazebo. Railroad a big hit with the kids of all ages. Truly a great day.
Even on "regular weekends" the train is a big hit. Just a great park and area with interesting shops across the street.

This park has a good restaurant and a charm ing little farmer's market on some Saturdays. There is also a little gift shop/museum. Check out their events-sometimes there is a band.

“Nice Park to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Fun place for the kids to run around and explore. Picnic sites and restrooms. There is a restaurant there, the Hamburger Factory, but we didn't eat. Just a nice park and area.
