Pedal boats...fishing...pony rides...cycling...yes please!
The OJ Watson Park is a beautiful 119 acre park filled with fun, relaxing and entertaining activities for the whole family.
Any train fanatics? Choo choo! Here comes the miniature train! There is also a really fun miniature golf course, as well as pony rides on really cute ponies!
If you love cycling there is a great rive bike path for the whole family to enjoy.
If you prefer the water, there is a 40 acre lake (yes - 40 acres!) where you can rent pedal boats, or spend some time family fishing. The fishing supplies are available at the concession stand.
If you are feeling REALLY brave, there is the Isle of Screams haunted walk! There is also a monster version adjacent. We're told it's not too scary, but that depends on how brave you are!
There are three children's playgrounds of varying sizes and surfaces, and a Moonwalk Castle which is great if you want some birthday party ideas.
If you want to make an afternoon of your lunch, there you can use one of the picnic shelters (and one enclosed shelter) - there are over 100 tables - first come, first served!
Hurry up! Nature's waiting!
Admission to the park is free, but a fee is charged for some activities.
If you want to spend some time fishing, make sure you get a state licence. Unfortunately you can't obtain these at the park. Bait can be purchased from the Concessions building.
Feel free to bring your own food! There are lovely designated picnic areas with 100 picnic tables and BBQ facilities available.
This beautiful part of nature is at 3022 S. McLean Blvd in the scenic Wichita, Kansas.
