Plenty to do here and a great place to walk around and get away from it all while the kids play. Food and drinks available as well as restrooms. Train ride is worth it for sure.

This most loved place is a great way for kids to get out their energy. Plus it includes swings, a museum, an option to take a ride on a train, a web for kids to climb on, and much more. It has places to eat food or plenty of delightful green grass to have a picnic. If you want to... More

It was a free walk about and not open, but we still found it very enjoyable and interesting to see. I would go back another time.

I admit the place is a tourist trap but us locals like it. Every city needs one. There are interesting attractions and the old time show at the Palace theater is well worth it.

The park is beautiful in the snow without a doubt but for us, the Bear Gallery was the destination to find local artists works and rub elbows with them as well.

Pioneer Park has a fun Railroad that you can ride. Many old buildings which have been moved from other places to the park and info about each building. The highlight of the Park for our group was the Air Museum.
