This is a fun place to take the family. My kids really enjoyed it. Even the other older ones. It is free and gives you something to do on your vacation that wont break your budget.

Very nice park with no entrance fee. There is a small charge for riding the train or carousel. Best for younger kids and families. Beautifully landscaped and maintained.

My kids are 8 and 6 and this was a bit on the young side for them. Some fun photo ops and room to run around. They would have really enjoyed it when they were a bit younger.

The downtown area is a wonderful place to do your eating, shopping, photographing the 43 president statues, watching the friendly locals and tourists.

A rare freebie in an area where everything costs a buck. It has all the old fairytale characters in little settings, a train ride and carousel (for a cost of $2 ea). There were places to get concessions. This place is an at your own...More

Teenagers might be a little bored. I have great memories of this place when I was young, but there's definitely a time period where teens might think it's "lame." With a teenager, you might be better off checking out Custer... More
