  • Franklin Sqauare is a nice little city park. Our favorite time to visit is at Christmas time when the park and the fountain are decorated with lights. The lights play in sync with Christmas music. Warm up by the fire pits or take a ride on the carousel. They also have a mini golf course. This is a nice place to visit with young children, teens or couples. My children are 4 & 15 and both enjoyed visiting Franklin Square.
  • The light show is spectacular. It gets better every year. There's always so much to see and explore from the train ride to mini golf. The food at square burger is yummy and fairly priced. They even handed out free snowflake accessories. Keep up the great work!!!
