Situated in the heart of the city, Congress Park lies amongst manicured trees, lush lawns and park paths. The famous ‘Spit’ and ‘Spat’ statues spray water at each other from the fountain. Congress Park features a historic carousel. Opened seasonally, this antique ride has been restored to its former glory and tickets are only $1.
The park also boasts several mineral springs, water known across the world for its unique mineral properties. Purported health benefits include clearing the skin, helping digestion, even strengthening the blood. In the summer, there are live music concerts, art shows and festivals on the property.
