Look Park Florence
Where are we going today?
It's so fun to find a park, that is SO much more than a park! If you're in Massachusetts, then you might want to head to Look Park.
This family friendly park is filled with so much more than just green grass to play on (although it has plenty of that too!)
Where to start! How about the playgrounds! Every park needs a playground, and Look Park is so different. Kids can crawl, climb, slide and hide in this colorful play area for kids.
Feeling it's a little warm in Massachusetts? Then just head on over to the pedal boats where the family can enjoy a relaxing ride on the river, or perhaps you want to try out the bumper boats where some friendly family competition with those fun water cannons!
Those little kids will also love the Water Spray Park too!
Got kids who love a little bit of sport? Why not head on over to the tennis courts! Yep, Look Park has 6 courts that you can practice on, but make sure you reserve them!
If that wasn't enough for you, Look Park also has the Christenson Zoo! Animals are waiting to say hello, from pygmy goats, bald eagles, deer, and even peacocks! Kids can also go for a fun ride on the Steamer Railroad - choo choo!
Don't miss the special events the park hold across the year too, from Wild Goose Chases to charity fundraisers, and there is even mini golf if you want to play a few rounds and try and get that hole in one!
With walking trails too, Look Park really is SO much more than a park - so turn off those computers and enjoy the sun!

We spend a lot of time at look park with our young kids (5 and 2). The play structures are great.The zoo is just the right size for young children to walk around in independently and the picnic stand has a pretty good selection of (reasonably priced) food for an impromptu picnic.

Although the pictures on the website look awesome..they are apparently old as well as these comments below mine. I brought my 4 year old son here in the beginning of summer. When we got there it was only a $5 parking fee, which seemed great compared to most places, unfortunately every other place is worth paying the money. We walked around the park before we did anything just to check it out, they have posted signs for things but they don't point you in the direction, we thought whatever we'll find it.

A local treasure. Beautiful, big, varied activities. Kid's playgrounds (two!), mini-golf, boat rides, and train rides a must.

Although the pictures on the website look awesome..they are apparently old as well as these comments below mine. I brought my 4 year old son here in the beginning of summer. When we got there it was only a $5 parking fee, which seemed great compared to most places, unfortunately every other place is worth paying the money. We walked around the park before we did anything just to check it out, they have posted signs for things but they don't point you in the direction, we thought whatever we'll find it. My son first went on the playground, which admittedly was probably the best thing about the park. Then we he had to go potty, the bathrooms weren't clean AT ALL. Then we walked by the spray park(wasn't hot enough to go in it) which is "what they're famous for" half of it wasn't working.. then we took my son on the train(supposedly goes around the park)..yeah right it was a 10 minute ride that went around pretty much in a circle, the attendant was a peach. Then we went to the "zoo" there were chickens, 2 eagles, a couple hawks, 2 peacocks, goats and sheep..woohoo they all looked dingy and not taken care of properly. My son saw mini-golf and begged to play..the course hadn't been clean in I don't know how long, they're was nothing fun about it, it didn't even keep my sons attention. Then my son wanted to do bumper boats, although the attendants were very nice ..it wasn't worth the money, the boats are so old they wouldn't even bump, and hardly moved ..the button for it to move made both mine and my boyfriend's hands beat red..it was so hard to push my son couldn't hold it down. Although they have large grass scapes..you can't picnic unless you buy a permit for a table(no blankets allowed) you need a permit to play basketball, baseball, volleyball, shuffleboard, tennis yes they are all seperate permits you have to pay for and you need to bring your OWN equipment for everything. All the sports areas were not taken care of at all. This place was really rundown and a REALLY big disappoinment..Good for a family reunion I guess if you bring all your own stuff. Other than that I suggest you stick to your own neighborhood playground or head to boston, or even kimball farm.
