We decided to take a chance on this part of Micke Grove Park and were not disappointed. With small children, not all parks can accommodate them, but there were plenty of rides for them to go on and it is not a huge, all day...More

My main reason for visiting Funtown was to ride the roller coaster, which dates back to 1972 ($4 a ride) but I must admit I was most impressed by the wonderful Alan Herschell train that circumnavigates this pretty little park. Funtown is ideal for small...More

This is perhaps one of the best places to bring your family in Sac area. Fun Town is fun for all ages, especially if you enjoyed visiting Ponderosa Ranch (Bonanza) when it was open. I think it has an edge over Funderland because it has...More

This park is full of beautiful shade trees. The amusement park is very small, but adequate for young children.

Small rides, big amusement! Surrounded in a much larger park that is called Micke Grove Park. This park contains not only Funtown, but a Chinese garden, a small outdoor cafe (lunch!) and a zoo. Littles and biggies alike will enjoy Funtown for its vintage charm....More

There for a family visit and brought the kids to the zoo. It's small but cute and the kids (ages 2, 4, 5, 7) had fun. Not expensive to get in ($5 for adults and $3 for kids) and a few play areas. Lots and...More

This took 2hrs, most of which was spent feeding the parrots. Not a big zoo, but a very big park. $6 to park any where, and the zoo was an additional $5/adult and $3/child. There is a Frisbee golf course, multiple playgrounds, splash pad, lots...More

The rides cater to the youngsters and there are ones available for all ages. At $2 to $4 per ride, a twenty dollar bill last for a while.
