“Mooney's Grove”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

The carousel picture is old. It was moved to Hanford years ago. But don't be discouraged. Mooney's Grove is a great place for a family afternoon. The County Historical museum. Frisbee golf course. Picnic arbors. Occasional special events like car shows.

“Beautiul Park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a great park. It may not be what it once was but it is still beautiful. It is quite large with many Pavillions. Lots of trees and frizbe golf. There are a few attractions but not many. We love to go there with the Dutch Oven cooking Club. They also have many events there.

“Remember its prime”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I remember when there was animals in cages there ( monkeys, sun bear and a few others ). To the south of the cages was arcade games and a snack bar ( sodas,cotton candy,hot dogs ect ).To the east a skate board ramp. Cross over the bridge ( row boats in the lagoon ) to the north was the goldfish pond then the child play area. To the south was the museum ( Indian artifacts,old homes,train,fire engine,ect ) Fee $0.25. Walk towards the entrance and to the north of where the pay booth is now was a carnival ( roller coaster, farris wheel,kiddie rides, my personal favorite gocarts,ect ). Not to mention the original statues that are now in Oklahoma last I heard. Can anyone add to this I was a teenager when it was this way.There was no fee to get in the park then

“$6 per vehicle entrance fee”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Mooney Grove Park has large trees and plenty of shaded pavilions. There are several playgrounds and a duck pond for the kids to enjoy. It is a popular place for children’s birthday parties and family picnics. Sometimes there is live music. It is a great place for kids to ride bikes. There is a $6.00 per vehicle entrance fee, which is well worth it if you plan to spend the day. If you do not want to pay the entrance fee, you can always park outside and walk in.
