Fun, fun, fun is the best description of Wheaton Regional Park. Just about anything a kid could want and more is available here. Explore the many play structures connected by bridges, slide down giant tunnels, climb through an enormous sand castle or swing in a tire. There’s even a section accessible by children with disabilities (it’s also great for beginner walkers or parents with strollers). If that’s not enough, there’s picnic areas, train, carousel, nature center, gardens, lake, ice rink, indoor/outdoor tennis courts, lighted ball fields, trails, and Wheaton Stables. The park also has a train and carousel. Dating from 1915 the carousel housed in Wheaton Regional Park operates daily from May through September. Tickets are $1.75 each or you can purchase a packet of 10 tickets for $15.75. A ride through Wheaton Regional Park on the miniature train is a great way to spend a spring or summer afternoon. Special spring break hours are available in April and special events such as the Easter Bunny train for Easter and Spooky Train rides for Halloween are held seasonally. Tickets are $1.75 each or you can purchase a packet of 10 tickets for $15.75. Tickets can be used for the train or carousel. Kids 2 and under are free with a paying adult.
