Really good job, on bringing the park back for the younger children of the area.

We go there often, with the kids and grandson. The grandson, is 3 1/2 years old and loves some of the rides, but really loves playing putt-putt.

I lived in Elmira for a decade, so my review is biased toward nostalgia. When I was little, Eldridge Park was an amusement park, and going there was a big deal for me. Then, the park was closed for many years. It is very heart warming to see it open again. Of course, I have to go and support Eldridge... More

Not just seasonal, though the rides and events are summer only. It is still an great place for bike rides, and walks with kids and creatures! I like to stop and watch the skate boarders do /try their skills! In the summer there are always events and rides and concerts! Lots of great family entertainment on a tight budget!

The fastest carousel, paddle boat rides and a beautiful park setting. Many things to do in Elmira. Be sure to visit the John W. Jones House across from the cemetery.

Or at least it felt like an old time park until it was invaded by 100's of Pokemon playersI In spite of it all the merry-go-round (I caught the brass ring!), the mini golf, the paddle boats, etc were all good. nice place to bring the kids on a sunny day.

We stopped here on a Friday with our boys, based on positive trip advisor reviews, to get a quick round of mini golf in. We got to the park at around 10 minutes to 8, they close at 9. Plenty of time to get a round of mini golf in with 8 & 10 year old boys, right? We weren't... More

We came to ride the carousel! The park was beautiful, especially at twilight, we didn't walk around at all or try any of the other rides or attractions, we only came to ride the carousel. What a joy. The modern music was not as appreciated, but when the bored young men were replaced by an older man operator, he got... More

This park is a great place to eat lunch, walk the course around the lake, play sports, or take a ride on the amusements. I was there on a Monday when the amusement park was not in operation but the rides look terrific. The lake was peaceful and there were plaques describing the trees, fishes, and other animals found in... More
