This was an interesting place to visit. The free admission got our attention, so we checked it out and it was almost strange, but also very neat. The kids got a kick out of all the stuffed animals and we got some very funny pictures with them. The kids especially found the stuffed monkeys funny. The antique general store was very cool and we spent a bit of time in there trying to explain all the items and equipment to my 6 year old daughter. I did my best as these things are well before my time as well. The gift shop was nice and the people there were incredibly friendly. The park outside was fun. The fire truck was a big kick for the kids. If you are in the area and have the time check it out-it's free and it's definitely different.

This place has closed, but it used to be our favorite park! It had covered equipment, and the kids enjoyed going inside for a break to look at the animals. I loved that the equipment was for every level of child, from babies to teens!
