Lots for small kids ages 4-8 - mainly slides and climbers and splash pad. The kids enjoyed themselves but it's only good for part of the day... plus side they let you bring a lunch and have a pavilion to eat. However, rides cost extra.

I still remember going there when i was a child the memories are majical, I took all 4 kids and now take my grandaughter. Its all about the storybooks we read, hickory dickery dock, humpty dumpty, the kids see everything from the books it appears to be real they even have animals, now they have rides as well. Its a peaceful park, you can have a picnic there, the rides are cheap, the experience is worth is take your bathing suit too as now they have a splash pad!

Great splash pad on a hot summer day. Large slides and spider web are fun. My 7 year old daughter still enjoys the puppets and barn with animals.

On a warm summer day, this is an excellent place to take young children. There is a little of everything: animals, carnival rides, jungle gym and live shows.
