  • Love this park, we use to have our family reunions there 1960's-90's. I visited with my grandchildren summer 2018 & had a blast! Italian ice vendor that had a variety of flavors was delicious. Had a blast on the carousel! Kids loved the Giant Slide! Great cheap fun!
  • The carousel is beautifully maintained. It's a wonderful heritage piece and the children seem to love it. The carousel is affordable so any child can ride. There are also a lot of events held throughout the summer.
