Although we live within 10 miles of the park, we had some trouble locating the entrance. Be sure to have good directions. This park has been under development for years. Although it is a pleasant experience and has lots of potential, so far, little of the planned development has been done. Nevertheless, the hot-air balloon ride is certainly worth a visit (check hours and call ahead). Also, the carousel is a beauty. There is a small play area for children and a walkable historical timeline that we found interesting. During our visit, several people were flying model planes,. which was also fun to watch. No charge, so enjoy!
