I love this park, because the old section was left intact. In particular, the merry-go-round provides a real "old school" feel and preserves the history of the place, while all the elements of modern park design are present in the new section, which was built by people in the neighborhood in the old "barn-raising" tradition.

In 2007 the people of the Mistletoe Heights neighborhood raised funds to build a new section of Tillery Park, which includes lots of things to climb on, swing on and slide on. The funds were matched by the city.
