This is a great park for a picnic. Go to the Art Museum or Krohn's Conservatory, and then have some grub by the pond or in one of the many picnic areas. The playground has been renovated recently and is more "natural" themed. I like it a lot, but on nice days there is a LOAD of children and my kids have a tendency to get trampled. I would recommend this playground for kids age 6 or older just b/c the play elements are bigger. No matter who you are, Eden park has something for you.
