We attended a reception in the Sunsphere, which is well worth a visit. The facility comfortably accommodates groups up to thirty. Because of the doughnut shape of the lower levels ("In the end, all things merge into one, and an elevator runs through it..."), larger...More

Not many city can claim a "World Fair Park" as a destination. Wheather you want to see the iconic Suntower or stroll the trails, the park is in great condition with waterfall, lake and concert venue. Stop by the museum of arts or just hangout.

We never miss the 4th of July celebration in World's Fair Park. Such a fun, down home, and family friendly experience. Kville Symphony will keep you entertained, and the fireworks are great. Grab a snack from one of the many vendors.

Yes, dogs are welcomed at the park. They may need to be on a leash if they like to run around a lot, but, if they stick with you, it should be okay to go without a leash.
