  • Looking for some outdoor and family time in a historical location? Look no further! Ten bucks per adult gets you into the deep local history of the area. If you don't want to shell that out, check out the gift shop or go to the brewery for some free history. Christmas lights are always great to see up close. The park is also home to Eagles, so grab your binoculars and take a stroll!
  • This was my first visit to Carillon Park since I was a young kid. The park has added so many new additions since I was there that were great to learn about and see. During our visit we were able to see a bald eagle and its nest! All of the volunteers and workers that we interacted with were extremely friendly and informed. The park is beautifully maintained and taken care of. Take your family and spend some time learning about our local history and enjoy the park for yourself!
