We stopped by to take pictures and ride the Ferris Wheel. There weren’t many people there and the diner and food truck were closed but it was fun to ride the Ferris wheel for $1.00 and see Fort Smith from the air. Great pics too!

Before my husband and I were married, we talked often of visiting this unique place and I romanticized it a great deal! After we were married we finally got to go and it was incredible. You dine in an old train car, among a playland...More

Looks like a great spot to bring the little ones for a bit. There is a carousel and a little spray park for the kiddies, and a ferris wheel if you are feeling adventurous.

This is a tiny little park with a few rides. Ferris wheel, carousel, etc. And some interesting animal structures. The Nickel and Dime Diner is also located here. Under new ownership the diner has excellent 1/2 price burgers on Mondays.
