Benson Park offers a variety of places to visit and events to attend. Kids will enjoy our playground, while others can partake in a walk or hike through our 4-plus miles of walkways and trails. The park store is open Friday through Sunday (weather permitting). You can also visit places that were here when the original park was open like the Old Woman in the Shoe, train station, elephant barn, and the gorilla exhibit. The Amphitheater is home to several events throughout the season. The 911 Monument offers a way to remember and honor so that we may “Never Forget”. There’s a dog park and plenty of parking!
