Great Playground and lots of space to run around. Playground was handicapped accessible and created so that anyone, with a variety of mobility issues is able to interact with the equipment. My kids had a great time!

Very pleasantly surprised when we visited this park! It is huge, very clean and well landscaped. The pavilion was very nice, beautiful flowers and shrubs, a stream full of water plants and, I think, some small fish. Concerts and fireworks are also on the schedule. We had a picnic under a shade tree, on the grass, on a quiet day.... More

We have walked thru the gardens many times - they are ok but nothing special compared to the GB gardens ....or the Madison gardens. Appleton needs to step it up! They need to put in public bath rooms...please !!

I love that it is more spread out with 10x as many things to play on as other parks. It can accommodate children of all ages and ability levels. I wish there was more seating surrounding the playground for parents & families to sit. The lake nearby is always fun - kids can fish or feed ducks.
