The park is located at 3022 S. McLean Boulevard. They used to have at least two entrances, but we could only find the one off of McLean.
I have some great memories of this park, as it was one of the parks I frequented as a kid. Not much has changed!
We drove around the park to the concessions area to start our adventures. This seems to be the center of activity at the park. From here you can access:
- Paddle Boats
- Miniature Golf
- Pony Rides
- Miniature Train Rides
We then headed over to the paddle boats. Tickets are needed, and we bought them from the concession stand. I was told they were cash-only, but they do accept credit cards. I forgot how fun paddle boats are! The fountain in the paddle boat area is a perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day!
The train rides were next on our agenda. It was a nice relaxing way to see the park and the kids had a blast! Why do kids always scream in tunnels? Or is it just my kids? Haha!
Wichita Parks and Rec’s website for the park says there are over 100 picnic tables at this park!! Next time we visit, picnic and fishing are a must. We didn’t go fishing this time, but we will definitely come back for that soon!

Mom Tips: Bring money you want to participate in the extra activities, but there is plenty to do without spending a dime. I’m going to go sometime to try the paddle boards! They’re $15 per hour, and can be rented on site.
Kid Tips: Weston and Sully both loved the paddle boats. Weston enjoyed this park so much he talked about having his birthday party here. Sully asked when we were going to come back.
