“Enjoyable Evening”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We went here for the evening as we were in the Fond du Lac area. The park is right on the lake and it has a very nice walking path. My favorite part was the lighthouse. The park also continues inland with nice fountains, bridges, and even some rides. It is a free park and worth a trip if you are in the area.

“Lot's to Explore”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

A great place to go for a long walk and take in the scenery. Quaint bridges around water and fountains, picturesque shore line of lake Winnebago and the pelicans, and fun views from top of the lighthouse. The deer enclosure was a fun place to stop for a moment too - my little one loved that they came right up to her. The park area was clean and had lots to do for kids of all ages and was grateful there was a fairly clean bathroom close by for the little ones. Hope next time there are animals in the petting zoo area, the train rides and merry-go-round, and maybe the boat rentals are open too.

“Nice Park in Town”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is a very nice park for a little town in Wisconsin. There was a little deer enclosure, train ride and more. Not a bad place to checkout while in Fond Du Lac.

“This park has it all!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Went here with 6 kids, all under the age of five. Here are a couple a key tips for your enjoyment. 1) The playgrounds, all 5 of them, are built differently for different age groups. If your kids gets bored before 2 hours are up, they are spoiled and you shouldn't have tried to satisfy them with a park in the first place. 2) The rides are really old school, but are worth the cheap cost. With ticket packages that are under $1/ride/kid, it is very hard to complain about any ride. DO be careful, because these rides were built before safety was built into the rides. 3) This place is huge, with large open spaces. Bring your lawn games as you will have plenty room. 4) Make it to the top of the light tower. It is 3 short flights up that kids can do and the view on the top gives you a little glimpse into how big the lake is and a view from the top of how big some of the boats are in the harbor. I will come back here every time I am visiting my friends in Waupun. It is worth the 20 minute drive each way.
