    it is only 5 dollars, per adult, and was worth it. my husband wasn't really thrilled about going but he liked it. it has a cabin, post office, schoolhouse and 2 wagons. it was interesting to see how people lived. the house is an office, where you pay and has a gift shop. some of the items for sale, you will recognize, if you are a fan of the show and books. they had a tin cup with a peppermint stick in it.they have a corral with a horse, pony and donkeys and or burros. we enjoyed it. they have big billboards directing you to it. there is even one telling you to turn around, if you missed it.

    Our family has gone to this park/zoo for many years; it has become a family tradition! Everyone is so pleased that the old playground equipment is still intact, just as they remembered it! And it is free to the public!
    So much for children! Don't forget the merry-go-round! Old-fashioned, and works! The price has permanently be set at only a nickel...
    And there is no admission fee! How great is that!
    Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you to the sponsors and city fathers for keeping this park going.

    It has pretty nice hiking and biking trails so i would totally suggest everyone to visit. Just make sure that it is not going to rain the day you visit as this will ruin everything.
