If this place doesn't bring out the kid in you, no place will. My wife and I loved it. It was lots of fun to ride the carousel. Your kids will love it too.

Memories from a younger age. The carousel is still as beautiful when my wife would ride them as a child.

Decided to go jogging/ walking here one morning and ended up exploring most of the park. Breathtaking park, loved it. Need to return, they do pony rides for children, duck boat rides, have a huge playground, a museum, and the zoo!
