This park is a blast from the past - and located only about 10 minutes from JB park on the Missouri side. Remember Mayor McCheese from the days when you liked McDonalds? He's here and you can share the bizarreness of early McDonalds playgrounds with a new generation! Naturally my 4 year old was terrified of him and wouldn't go inside for anything or even stand next to him for a picture!
Besides Mayer Big Mac, this park also has some retro bouncy spring toys, a large merry-go-round, slides, sling swings, and is mostly shaded!
