This place is a great spot to visit especially if you have young children. We had our daughter's birthday party here and it worked out wonderfully. The kids could run and play, ride the train, go to the zoo, and ride the carousel! Such a great place!

Beautiful, close county park. Great paths, love the zoo. It would be great if they brought in more food choices. Get there early enough for parking!

This is a great park with farm animals and zoo animals for children to see. This park has animals that you can feed. There are train rides for the family. It has a area to have a picnic in the park. You can ride the carousel. The playground is the BEST with playground equipment for all children all ages.

For every season there is something going on at the zoo. From walks with your favorite pet or person to seeing animals that are in the wild or having lunch in the park> I still go here at 50 !!!!

Living near Van Saun County Park has been great since we have opportunity for daily strolls, especially with kids to the playground.
