“Wonderful family fun!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

We went with several families that had small children to pre-teens & there was something for everyone. The kids LOVED the four seated bike ride & the paddle bikes. We also boarded the train & enjoyed the ride through the park plus some of the history. Everyone at the sales booths were VERY nice. The park had many shady picinic tables & BBQ grills. We enjoyed that they had pony rides & a small zoo too! My family enjoyed themselves so much that we will DEFINATELY be coming back.

“Very nice park with many activities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

The park a great place and many activities for families. I visited the park twice in less than a month and every time I found new things to do. My kids loved it and can't wait to go back again.
Horse back riding, pitting zoo, biking, train riding, paddle boat were all available at the park.
Horse back riding and guided trail ride was one of my best experience and should not be missed.

“A nature lovers park with lots of options”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

We visited this park recently in the morning and found this huge park with lots of people taking long walks along the many roads along thick green surroundings with cool breeze and sounds of chirping birds. Few water bodies, a zoo, a mini train track, a choice of horse ride, picnic areas were options.
We were surprised to see many peacocks roaming in the park, some showing off their open plumes, a fantastic sight. Also many water birds around the small lake.
We took the hiking trail that led us to the top of a hill with nice views of the surroundings.
This park is worth visiting, special for morning walks for fresh cool pure air that will leave you totally refreshed for the day.

“Fun Family Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

The park had lots to offer my family: however, my children (ages 7 and 9) thought is was a little boring. Also, they were too old for the pony rides and were disappointed. The scenery and location were perfect for our picnic. After talking to others, we discovered that fishing and hiking is fantastic for families with children of similar ages. Will definitely try that in the future

“Lots to do here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

One of the better regional parks, this sprawling park includes both native landscape, and grassy play areas. The zoo is surprisingly good, and small kids will like the train ride. Lots of hiking, and biking options. Grab food from local places just outside the park and enjoy a nice picnic.
