Description: Kennedy Park has it all! This is one of my daughter's favorite places to go because it literally has everything to have fun within steps of each other. Giant playground with play structures, check! Bouncy tent, check! Train ride, check! Merry-go-round, check! Feeding animals, check! Refreshments, check! Yes you can spend the whole day at Kennedy Park and your child will never get bored with so much to do and see. You can buy very reasonably priced tickets at the ticket booth for all of the attractions at this park and then let your child loose to visit them all. My daughter loves a good bounce house and Kennedy Park always has one up and available. After she kicks off her shoes for a few turns in the bouncy tent, she heads over to take a few spins on the merry-go-round. The whole family rides together on their choo-choo train which circles the parameter of the park. In the animal feeding zone, you can purchase ice cream cones of feed to surrender to the ravenous goats. After using up all your child's tickets there is still a giant play park with about three different structures and swings! Your child will be begging to stay for one more activity!
Highlights: This is a great place to have parties or a family get together. There are lots and lots of picnic benches and BBQ areas, so you can almost always find a zone to claim for the day. Plus what's better than having all those play options for your littlest guests- you can't go wrong.
Tips: Buy your tickets by the bunch not individually, they will get used up and quicker then you think! Plus everyone will need some to ride the train.
