Cody park is known for the ice cream in the summer. Public pool is right there. Right on the lake to tube and kayak. Nice drive around the park for some good animals, elk is my fav.

I visited the park to see the trains but there was much more to do. There were live animals and kiddie rides (not operation) as well as camping. This is a beautiful, relaxing spot!
