  • Overall, the plane observation area is great. This is a family oriented place. The children play on the playground with one another. You can have a picnic, sit in the car and relax, drink coolers, take a stroll, and bike ride. Great for dates as well. There is always an ice cream/cotton candy/Italian ice truck here. All of these activities take place while watching the airplanes take off. Doesn’t matter how old you are ..the planes make everyone stop what they are doing to pay attention.
  • It was a nice little park. My son loves airplanes so I chose this park after reading about it online. The airplanes seemed to come constantly. My son loved it! You'll be fighting for a shade spot. Overall, we'll be back!
