“Best Local Park and Ice Cream Parlor”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Every summer, Kendrick Park in Sheridan, Wyoming opens it's concession stand. Many ice cream flavors to chose from, but we go there whenever we visit home because it is one of the very few places you can get licorice ice cream. I am talking black licorice. Kendrick Park is a great little park. Shady, grassy and a nice music pavilion for summer evening concerts. In recent years, a paved hike and bike path has been added to Sheridan. Part of it skirts one end of the park, making the park a great stop on a long bike ride, because, yes, you can bike long or short around Sheridan. These are some of the best bike paths I have ever ridden and I currently reside in a "bike friendly" city. Sheridan's are better. Don't forget the Sheridan Rodeo is the second week of July. A really great little rodeo without the crowds of bigger cities. Bonus: pancake breakfast, Rodeo Run, bed races, parade (after the parade, you can "ballyhoo" with the 7th Cavalry) and two nights of street dancing during rodeo week. The 5k run goes right through Kendrick Park. So if you are visiting Wyoming this summer, make sure you make Sheridan a stop during Rodeo week. And one more thing, some really great new restaurants and at least one micro brewer. Check out Warehouse 201 and while you are eating some first class food, notice the detail in this restored building.

“Beautiful Location”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Our photographer chose this location for us and assured us that it would be the perfect location for us to get remarried. We showed up there on the day of the ceremony and we were pleasantly surprised. We had looked at this location online but it was so much better in person. You can see the mountains from the hill and the manicured lawn made for the perfect setting. We also were worried from reading on their website that there would be an additional charge for using the grounds but they were happy to let us use if for no cost at all. The setting was very quiet and serene and the weather could not have been better. There were a few people milling around but once they realized what we were doing (which was obvious with my big dress) they stayed clear of the area where we were. The mansion itself was not open on the day but the grounds are very nice. There is also a wildlife preserve nearby that is the home to a small herd of buffalo and that was a fun surprise. I would recommend this stop in to everyone at any age. There was plenty of path space throughout so it is accessible to everyone.

“Best hard ice cream around!”

Stop here for the best hard ice cream cones! They are huge and very inexpensive. Your kids will love playing on the playground as well.

“Great for kids, but big enough to find a space for some reflection as well”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Great park for walking or cycling or enjoy sitting on a bench by the creek enjoying the sound of the water. There is also a very large playground area for the children. There is a swimming pool but it was not open when we visited. There are picnic tables. A nice park in Sheridan, WY. The Sheridan Pathway comes through here for exercise and we enjoyed bicycling on this pathway in Sheridan.
