Cute little park

Looks like a great spot to bring the little ones for a bit. There is a carousel and a little spray park for the kiddies, and a ferris wheel if you are feeling adventurous.

This is supposedly the oldest operating ferris wheel in the US. Whether that's true or not, I don't know, but I do know it's worth the 10 or 15 minute stop to enjoy this attraction for just $1. Do it, if for no other reason than to make a memory or to say you did it. Plus there are shops... More

This is a tiny little park with a few rides. Ferris wheel, carousel, etc. And some interesting animal structures. The Nickel and Dime Diner is also located here. Under new ownership the diner has excellent 1/2 price burgers on Mondays.

Cute little park area with an old ferris wheel and carousel. There are animal statues around the area as well as a little diner and outside tables. The sign said it was open and the gates were open, but we couldn't find anyone so we couldn't ride the rides.

The kids will enjoy the Ferris Wheel and the Merry Go Round as well as the statues of animals. A very small area but there is a restaurant there, not sure when that is open as park hours and days are limited. The Park is run by the City of Fort Smith. There is also a green area with a... More

Everything was closed but I had to stop when I saw the Ferris wheel. The 56 ft Ferris wheel was featured in the 1935 Worlds Fair. There are bus's and trolleys that serve as restaurants. It was worth the stop, probably more so during warmer months.

This is just a small park with an old carousel and ferris wheel. The area was clean and well maintained. There is also an old train that is converted into a restaurant. My 3yr old and I ate here. The food was great, but there is very limited seating inside. We had a good time, must see if you are... More

Just has a Ferris wheel and a carousel, but it's a really cute area. There's also a diner in an old frilly and a little concession stand in an old double decker bus. Great little stop. Oh! And all rides are $1!

My family loves this little park. My kids, 7 & 9, enjoy the Ferris wheel and the carousel. The park is nicely kept, clean and the staff is helpful. We also ate at the Boomerang Cafe on our last trip and enjoyed it as well.
