A gorgeous park, with walking trails and beautiful flowers. Also the tamest deer you will find anywhere. A real gem.

This was our first time visiting the festival of lights. We had heard many positive things about it so we decided to give it a try..It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I definitely want to go back again..There wasn't much snow on the ground at the time but I'm pretty positive it would be even more beautiful with the snow..

This is a huge park within easy driving distance of I-70. We stopped off for an hour or so and found many different attractions available (paddle boats, mini golf, mansion tour, etc.). Lots of wildlife, too!

One of the best light displays during the holidays. Wonderful location and magnificent views. Cabins are available year round. Fishing, paddle boats and a zoo make up a few of the activities. Hope you enjoy this location..
