  • Awesome park with many options to spend your day. From nature hikes, to a Merry go round, to a petting zoo to a steam train. Lots to do here

  • This park is amazing. Not only beautiful, but a fun place to visit with the whole family. We have enjoyed several Saturdays in Tilden park and we're eager to go back. A few highlights include: The merry-go-round Petting zoo and visitors center The steam trains If you're a local, don't miss out on visiting this park!

  • This park is beautiful! A nice place for short or longer hikes. The naturalists on staff were great with my kids. It was both educational and fun.

  • Went here for a movie in the park and to walk my dog good trails and they have a small animal farm you can visit! Just bring sleeves it can get chilli good parking and a little park for the kiddies!

  • Wonderful place! Be sure to go to the Little Farm to see and feed the animals. You can only bring lettuce or celery for the cows and goats, as they are on a veterinary diet. Cows love the celery!
