“Cute for little ones, boring for adults”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

Cute park for little ones (i would say 5 and under), my twin 2 year olds loved it, but my husband and I were hoping for a bit more. The park is pretty much a big splash pad and a bunch of giant jungle gyms. There is a little farm area with some sheep, goats & chickens and an area with 2 seals, but that's all. When we walked into the park we were excited to see a few amusement rides (Ferris Wheel, Carousel, etc.) but were not impressed that you had to pay extra per ride. I thought for the price of the admission those would be included, but they're not. Not a great value for only a splash pad and jungle gyms, but my 2 year olds loved it.
