  • Coolidge has been a memory of mine since childhood. I enjoyed coming here for field trips with my school, as well as play days with my friends and family. We now have carried on the tradition by bringing our son! He loved playing in the water fountain and the beautiful carousel. We got some family pictures with the iconic walking bridge, and made priceless memories. Always a great day at the park!
  • The water fountain splash area is big hit with the kids. The scenery is beautiful. The grounds are well kept. Great family atmosphere. Oh yeah, the merry-go-round is a lot of fun too!
