I highly recommend visiting if you’re in the area. Amazing place to be when the holiday seasons are near. Great place for dates, family, friends, and everyone of all ages. There are various restaurants super close by, make reservations as it will get packed. There are food venders at the park, find the one that makes hot cocoa and put whip cream on the top with a plastic snowman (~$5). Looks so cute and it’s pretty tasty when you’re walking in the cold. Hope to see you there this holiday season! 🙂
