Children with a great imagination will have a great time exploring and playing in this multi-level park and playground. Even the adults seem to enjoy themselves. Be aware, there are not any restrooms on site.

Small park that is a memorial to Boo but it is very well kept and nice to relax in. Recommend a stop by to allow your kid or even your inner child to enjoy and relax.

You will become a child again as you climb and crawl through these castles. Let your imagination run wild as you sit on the throne or on a dragon’s head. You won’t want to miss this southern Illinois gem!
