The Zoo is a must see along with the mini train and the vintage Carousel. Don’t forget the swimming pool in the heat of summer. The rose garden is one of the finest in the area.

Yes. You will find many people with pets in the park, including a designated area (dog parks) for large and small dogs to be off their leashes. Enjoy!
