The zoo portion of this park has limited but very interesting animals. It's large enough to be interesting, but small enough to navigate with a toddler. The rides and play area are perfect! Not too scary but loads of fun. There was even a delightful puppet show. It's a great spot for picnicing as well. My 3 year old grandson loved it! And so did I!

This park was a last minute excursion for us and we are glad we made it. Very doable for young kids. The animals are great and the playgrounds are fun and the rides are awesome too!

Often took the kids here when they were growing up. Heard they did a wonderful new remodel. It's simply a great field day for the kids!

It's been a few years since I've been here, but friend who frequent Happy Hollow stil rave about it. It is family friendly, but also a great place to just go by yourself. Weather is always beautiful in that area. You won't be disappointed.
