Hadn't visited in years, but came with my adult daughter and her 2 year old boy, my sister and her adult daughter. It was a hot humid day so we arrived early. The ice cream vendo's were out of order, the misters were not all functional and even bottled water required more walking than this granny wanted.
The displays and attractions were clean and in order. Baby enjoyed his train ride and carousel ride.
Come with plenty of water, sunscreen, and hats!

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.
