Family Fun Directory of Things To Do with Kids:
Como Town Amusement Park is a permanent (seasonal) amusement park abutting the Como Zoo & Conservatory.
While unlimited rides can be expensive for a family on a budget, single rides can be an affordable treat, and sometimes less is more in these circumstances. Another good family deal is Hodge Podge Park (see details below).
Free Family Fun Foam Party
In 2017, the park introduced a free, bubbly attraction: kids (and their adults) can enjoy a foam party any day. The foam party is described as "a bubble bath without the water". Visitors of all ages are invited to stop by and enjoy playing in the bubbly foam.
