This is a really fun place for the kids, and they even get some learning out of it. All the nursery rhymes are familiar to the adults so it's fun for us too. Great picture opportunities for the whole family.

If you are in the Black Hills area and have kids ages 2-12 this is a must stop. It is free for a donation and well worth the stop. You can easily spend a couple hours here.

This park is free! Hubby went to senior center nearby to play pickleball so I went by myself. Loved all the storybook character statues and watching families with their children enjoy the place. Loved Yogi Bear and Boo Boo and Wizard of Oz the most!

This is the most charming place! I do not have young children (teens and upper elementary) and was absolutely enchanted with this place. The atmosphere is sweetened by Disney and other whimsical music playing through loudspeakers. And, you can't beat the free price-tag for entrance....More
