The park is also home to fun and family-friendly activities and gardens including:

  • Sculpture Garden - featuring works of art from local and regional artists and includes permanent and transient pieces. If you're inspired, there's still room for more imagination.
  • Prairie Rose Carousel - the fully restored 1926 antique carousel is one of only three antique Spillman Carousels still operating in the United States. Twenty-two wooden horses, two chariots, and mechanisms were meticulously restored over a four-year period. The carousel is open to the public daily, Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend and is located next to Chahinkapa Zoo.
  • Chahinkapa Park Swimming Pool - community swimming pool includes a 178-foot double loop water slide! Lessons, parties and special events throughout the season.
