Went there with my 18 year old daughter and my 11 year old granddaughter and EVERYONE had a great time. If you get there early, and on a nice day, I would advise getting the combined ticket. We were fortunate, and got there on a...More

This is a great local park with rides and a waterpark. They have picnic areas you can use for family, work, or get-togethers. The park is clean and family friendly. It's not like Cedar Point or Kennywood but it has enough rides to make everyone...More

We always drive by it on our way to the beach on Presque Isle and we decided to check it out. It's very very small, most rides are for the little ones and very few games. If I wanted to go to an amusement park,...More

Not sure there is a "Z" but all the picnic areas are south of the Train station and Merry Go Round. The Eastern Grove areas are near the fence perhaps you are looking for Eastern Grove "2" ? Good Luck.
