“A special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Have been to Look Park many times, with both seniors and children. It is very beautiful and particularly excellent for families with small children - fine playground and splash pad, little train through the grounds, wide lawns for playing, picnic tables. For any age: mini-golf, snack bar, Pines Theater, pedal boats, small zoo, vending machines with food for birds. A beautiful, relaxing place.

“My favorite Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Took my kids there many, many years ago, took my 2nd wife's kids many years ago, now I take my Grandson there! Worth the trip. Petting zoo, train ride, paddle boats, bumper boats, water "park" for kids, mini golf, music concerts as well as the usual park fun stuff! The pool is gone, but so what? Take a stroll up stream to the waterfall, reserve a picnic table and grill some burgers & dogs and create some family memories like we did!

“So many activities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

I was impressed with all the things to do at Look Park: playgrounds, spray park, mini zoo, train, boats, mini golf, and relaxing open spaces for picnics, etc. Fee for parking is $7 on weekends-and other costs for many of those activities, but overall a lot of value at this park. One of many gems of parks in Western Mass, including Forest Park in Springfield and Stanley Park in Westfield.

“Very Reasonable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

My husband and I took our two year old here. It was 7 dollars to park, 5 for us to ride the train and the water spray park and zoo was free. The grounds are very well maintained and the staff is very nice. My only complaint was the restrooms near the water park were dirty and had no changing table. Our son had a great time and can not wait to go back. Perfect place for a young child:)

“Wonderful wedding”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Attended a wedding this past Saturday July 7, 2012. It was an outdoor wedding in the Pines Theatre with the reception at The Garden House. Lovely outdoor venue and the indoor reception building was beautiful, although the seating capacity is very limited.
