A visit to Nelis' Dutch Village is like a step back into the Netherlands of over 100 years ago on a day when a festival came to town. Demonstrations and performances; tastes, sight and sounds; and something to interest all ages. Unique shopping too.

My three teens really enjoyed their visit. They led the goats around, rode on the ferris windmill, and enjoyed the petting zoo. This also would be a great place to go if you had younger children.

We are sixty-somethings and had a great time here. The amusement rides are mostly old rides that were rescued. Nothing is scary. The grounds are beautiful. The various shops are interesting because they were of various trades. The static displays were well done too. Kids were having alot of fun here (pre-teen). Restaurant was ok but not that special.

This is a nice relaxed park to spend the day visiting. The kids loved the petting zoo, rides, and shows. Don't miss the ice cream parlor -- delicious!

Neil's Dutch Village is a unique experience, fun for the entire family, and educational as well. We have two daughters ranging in ages of 4-7 and they simply had a blast. Rides, attractions, shows, a "petting" zoo that by far is the best experience we have ever encountered at a petting zoo and taste testing throughout the day. Everyone is... More

Took our four grandkids here on August 27, 2016. What a fun day! Informative, very friendly, courteous guides. Kids loved the rides and outside activities the best, but did learn more about their heritage from the short talks in the different buildings. Well worth the money--we had a coupon which helped. Also ate at the Café with good food. The... More

Interesting place to visit with the kids or grandkids. They have a barn with petting and renting a goat to take a walk - not sure who walks who, though. Limited rides, Dutch shops available

Had a really fun time with the family of 5. Great for all ages. Plenty to do and very Dutch authentic. Wooden shoe clog demo, can make your own Dutch pancakes, watch a dance and dance yourself. They have a slide and playhouse for the kids. There is a small Ferris wheel and farm animals too. The cheese tutorial was... More

I have gone to Dutch Village several times over the years. It is always great to see the improvements they have finished. A very nice way to spend the day. Lots of fun for the Children also. They could use a few more benches throughout the park for some of the people who have handicaps, or the day is really... More

I took my daughters to Dutch Village and we had a wonderful time. The girls especially loved walking the goats. I loved the Dutch food and the fact that the girls were able to make a Dutch cookie.
