You can bring your kids to so many different areas. During the summer months the Carousel, paddle boats, ducks, and mini golf are favorites. The walking areas are great. The park is huge and is a good place to rent for a B-day party or larger event. The new bathrooms are nice. Overall, this is the best place in Freeport

Gorgeous country scenery in the city. The walking trails are well marked, paved and beautiful. I'd spend a weekend in Freeport just for this park! Spillway, waterfall, carousel, forest, big creek, trails.

One of the largest and nicest parks around the area with lots of diversity. The activities are only open high season and weekends. There is limited parking and you usually have to walk long distances to get to where you want. A great place to visit when in Freeport.

Very large park that you can actually drive through. Lots of places to park where you can get out and explore. Beautiful waterfall and dam with lots of wildlife. If you are looking to relax and take in the local scenery this is a great place.

Krape Park is one of the most pleasurable Parks I've ever been to. It offers canoeing at a reasonable price $4 and also miniature golf also costing $4. The scenery is very beautiful with many walking trails throughout the park. Fishing is allowed as is picnicking. There's a massive playground for children to use including an old fire truck and...
