Pump'nGo Cars
Petal Pumper cars
Popular Chicago area KiddieLand is closed and one of its best rides has a home in our park now. These self operated Petal Pumper cars are popular with little kids. Their faces beam as they make their own car go round the track. A great photo op!

Preparing Cheese Tasting Samples
The Dutch love their cheese. Over the ages, the Dutch have become well known throughout the world for their high quality cheese. Gouda cheese is a Dutch favorite. Nelis' Dutch Village, using vintage 19Th century equipment, has recreated a typical farm house cheese making operation producing our own Gouda cheese. From cow's milk to finished cheese wheel, visitors can see the whole process. Afterward our Gouda can be sampled as well as other types of cheese from around the world.
