“Beautifully located in central Lafayette with numerous shelter houses and picnic tables with grills for cookouts, the Columbian Park Zoo has a petting zoo along with a train that runs through and around the zoo.”
“... and "carnival style" kids rides, interactive exhibits allow kids to get right in there with the animals, educational activites too, and it asjoines to the local park and has a train ride around the park and pond.”
“This is a turn of the century park with a beautiful pond, an amphitheater, a children's train ride, a great playground separated for kids of different ages, a water park, and a zoo, for Heaven's sake.”
“Every time we come back to the park, I swear there is something new and it's expanded somehow.”
“Despite the beautiful weather and the fact that the park was full, we only saw a handful of people on trails 3 and 4. I recommend heading to the back of the park to hike 3 and 4 for the best experiences.”
“Probably a little biased because I work here but, I have worked in other parks and I rank this park up with the best park I have worked or volunteered in!”
