Ackley Park has many attractions, including a carousel with 36 hand-carved wooden horses, two bench seats and a spot for a wheelchair. Play miniature golf or ride the miniature train. You’ll also find a kiddie playground, two ponds, four tennis courts, six pavilions and two volleyball courts. It’s located on historic Route 66. The park is free, but the carousel, mini golf and train rides all have a small fee.

The local Kiwanis Club operates this “amusement park” with a tilt-a-whirl, merry-go-round and airplanes. The park is free, but the rides take one or two tickets. They keep the prices low so it won’t break your bank.
