I had been to the Deer Park many times growing up (I think every trio to the Dells), but my fiance had never been and I wanted to share with our four-year-old daughter. It is still a great experience - feeding the deer, seeing the other animals. It is peaceful, restful, and wasn't too crowded. As long as your kid doesn't end up scared of the deer like mine, it will be a great experience. A fun family place as always.
