Took our grandchild ( 3 years) on the train - he loved it. Interesting commentary by the conductor. 15 minutes - $5 not bad

The museum with model railroad layouts was ok, bit small, but free. Was disappointed that the train ride did not use live steam engines. Nice adjacent playgrounds for children.

There is not a heck of a lot of things to do with small children. This place rocks. You can rent bikes, boats and take train rides. Nice gardens. Good place for a picnic.

We went here with our grandkids for New Years, and the train ride was awesome! It was the last Christmas display train ride for the year, so they had Christmas decorations displayed the whole way through the ride. The playground there is awesome too!

On Sunday we took our Grandson to the park since he enjoys trains and we had a great time riding the train ride. Inside the museum we saw some model trains and many donated train pieces, with some like the bell, hands-on. Worth the experience.

Nice time if you have kids and the train ride was a must. You can rent bikes and explore the entire grounds. You can also rent small boats and explore the pond.
