This is an awesome park for the kids. The train and carousel are the main reasons we go. Tickets are $3 a person. During the winter they have an awesome Christmas light set up.

This is a fantastic park... I've gone here since I was a kid. They have a small gauge train that goes around the park. It's super fun around Halloween when they decorate spooky woods... Vason a portion has a nice lake.
