Superb park!

The best playground for kids, it's huge! The carrousel is so lovely and it's free :-) You can go swimming in the outside pool for just $0.5, isn't that great!

By far my kids favorite one. Plus the new renovation of rec park makes the park world class no exaggeration, For all abilities. Hats off to the city, they will win awards for their investment into the city.

We rode all 5 of the carousel's to receive a free button that we rode them all. The 6th one is under construction/renovation but they allowed us to get the button. We took 8 friends from out of town to do the circuit. They loved it!

So nice to see that Recreation Park is still active. I grew up riding the merry go round, enjoyed concerts,picnics, swimming and tennis at this park. I stopped by over the weekend and all was up and running. Even the ice cream truck came:)

Two friends and I visited on Sunday, June 12. After riding on the carousel, the lovely young attendant took our pictures on the carousel and provided a step stool to make it easier for us to get on and off. Wonderful experience.

The carousel has brought back many memories from my youth! It's a great ride and the horses look great! I went during the Christmas ride. The place was decorated to the hilt. It was beautiful.

All Carousels in this area are FREE to ride. This was made so as part of the deal to put the carousels in. There are several in the area and it is fun to do the "circuit" and ride them all in one day!

There are 5 (or ?) free carousels in Broome County. All are well taken care of and free. They were donated with the promise that there would be no charge.
