This is a neat park in the summer with a great boulevard drive though it. After Thanksgiving, the park is lit up in Christmas lights. The park department does an excellent job adding new and creative displays. At the end of the drive through, Cherry Mashes (made in St. Joe). are handled out.

Just revisited the park after an absence of two years. Many improvements have been made and the park is truly lovelier than before. No trip to St Joe would be complete without a visit to the park.

Once a thriving attraction of the city during it's heyday, when the population of the city was almost double what it is now, Krug Park is only a shadow of what it was in it's prime. Still a nice place to go for some quiet time.

Have seen pictures of the park in late/early 1800/1900. It was beautiful. But as many assets of Saint Joseph it has been allowed to crumble to ruins. They have done a renovation of the pond which has help, but much much more needs to be done.

Beautiful historic park. They have been doing some renovation work but it is really making the park better. We picnic there all the time. Great for a stroll, taking kids to play, even some trail bike riding. Just an all around great outdoor space.

I live only a mile from the park and never get sick of driving through it. In the summer you can enjoy the ducks and geese you can feed at the recently cleaned and redone pond. In the winter it becomes the Christmas spectacular of the city. I love this park!

This is a wonderful park to walk the trails or to have a picnic. The lagoon was recently renovated and is a great place to feed the geese.

Krug Park lies at the north end of the city-spanning parkway system. If feature a lagoon with fowl, fenced bison, deer, and maybe a cow or tow, lots of picnic tables and shelters, and even a Castle! Yes, a Castle. A couple of playgrounds, too.
