I remember coming here in the 80s when I was young and the 90s with my oldest when he was little. As I have aged, so has this park. The park district has done a great job keeping it clean and safe, it's just aging. I was excited to bring my two younger kids with me (4 and 11 yrs old). Upon entering the girl I gave my tickets to, told me since my older guy is big I wouldn't have to pay for him, but he could still try and do some rides. My four year old loved the park and the rides they had. The employees were very good about letting my older child go on the boats, train, and carousel, which was very nice. The only thing that really, really bothered me is the other parents. A lot of the other children lacked supervision and constantly cut in line. One child went on the rock climbing wall 5 times in a row before anyone said anything to him. They have a tiny food stand (or you can bring your own), but be prepared to eat ice cold food. The chicken tenders and fries had been sitting for a looooong time. The bathrooms were comparable to a rest stop bathroom- dirty. Will I go back, yes but only because I still have the extra ticket.
