As a teenager, the long and adventurous bike ride from Florence with my cousin Diane was the ultimate in summer adventure. The Park, with it's cool and inviting pine groves, sprinklers filled with gleeful children and paddleboats on the lake were more than enough to satisfy the curiosity of the adventurous youth. The pancake cabin, packed with weekenders in search of a carb-loading experience, would inevitably disgorge themselves mid-morning to wander among the grounds and experience the beauty of the place while digesting their meal.
A lot has changed since those days in 1972. The pancake cabin burned down, and the upgrades to the park were slow in coming, but no matter. I still ride the train in my mind (back when it was a diesel replica, before the fancy steam train that exists today) and I hear the park in it's vintage years breathing in my ear.
The bike ride home was no less savory, with stops at the local corner store for licorice, bubble gum and whatever else would tide us over before dinner. The long shadows on Beacon Street seemed to complete the picture as the day faded to the strains of our amature harmonica music from the porch of the old house. Today, we would both agree, was fantastic. Tomorrow would be nothing less than extrodinary.

We love taking the grandkids to Look Memorial Park. We've been going for years and years and seen it go from beautiful, to rundown, and now back to beautiful. The paddleboats and the train are not to be missed.

Look Park in Florence is a great place to spend a nice summer day. They have a water play area, paddle boats, train, a small zoo, and many picnic sites. A great place to have a family reunion!

Look Park is one of our favorite places to go when we want to spend the day outside. There are paddle boats, a petting zoo, small water park, and a kiddie train. Excellent!

Look Park is a fun place to hang out for the day. The kids love to see the animals. They have paddle boats and a train but my kids favorite hang out is the water park.

This is one of the best parks in the area... It is great to spend a day at with the family. The kids love this park with all it has to offer. The animals and train are such a plus with young kids. Not to mention the playscape!

Look Park is a lovely place to visit. It has paddle boats that are loads of fun, a petting zoo and a little choo choo train that parents and kids can ride for a mini tour of the park.

A wonderfully large park that offers plenty of recreational opportunities for the whole family. My kids particularly like the playscapes (there are two, one well designed for toddlers, and other for older kids), plus a water spray park. The small train ride and small zoo are also favorites. There is plenty of space in the open fields or woods for picnics and walks.

Look Park is a beautiful place to spend a day walking through the trees, playing in the water park, or riding on the paddle boats and train. Our family often has parties here. You can rent a picnic site and spend the day outdoors.
