Our granddaughter is only three, so she stuck to the merry go round and the train which travels around the park. One of the nicest features I feel is that there are two super playgrounds, and for Lizzie, she was just as happy on the "free" playground equipment as she was on the ticketed rides.
Picnic spots are abundant, making this a reasonable day out for families. As the website points out, enjoying summer is a great way to stave off winter blues and that awful cabin fever. Considering last winter, I plan on savoring lots of special times this summer as a way of preparing for another long Wisconsin winter, should it come. Another great feature is the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary which is just across the road, making it easy to combine amusement with education. The Sanctuary has many displays about ecology, biology, and has trails along the wetlands. No admission charge for either the Amusement Park or the Wildlife Sanctuary.
We had a great day and made it home for a quick, but late supper. Then we popped some popcorn and headed out to the woods our youngest son and his wife recently purchased. It is only a few miles from their house, but they decided to camp out there this holiday weekend. The grandkids were delighted to see us, and we were able to enjoy some campfire time while still being able to make it home for a good night's rest in our own bed! Great start to the holiday weekend!
