“The carrosel and minature train are something”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

The restored carrosel and minature train are fantastic things to let your grandchildren or children ride on.. The rides are only $.50 per time and there is an adjacent free playground for them to play in as well.

Beautiful, well-maintained park, but the lovingly restored carousel is the highlight that makes it worth the trip.
