A fun time at the Gage Park. Beautiful landscaping and enjoyable aesthetics. The exhibits were interesting and the workers were knowledgable and friendly. We enjoyed touring on our own. Mike and Debi P.

This beautiful park has much to offer including the Topeka Zoo, the Kansas Children's Discovery Center, the Reinish Rose Garden, a train carousel, dog park, horseshoe pits, pool, and playground. You can easily spend an entire day at the park. Lots of family fun opportunities.

We stopped there to have a picnic lunch on our travels. There were a good many people there but it was not crowded. It is lovely with a pretty rose garden. It would be a great place for a group picnic.

Gage Park is home to the Topeka Zoo but also has the train, carousel, playground, Rose gardens, pool and the Bark Park for the furry ones. It is also a beautiful place to go and eat lunch as there are many picnic tables throughout the park. There is truly something for everyone.

There is so much to do at this park. The zoo is also located in this park just across from the train and large play area. There are horseshoes and tennis courts, a bark park, tulip garden and many more things to see and do.

While nothing is spectacular, collectively Gage Park is a nice place to visit. It is family friendly (zoo, playground, mini train, pool, carousel) and nice for couples (rose garden, garden pond, greenspace).
