Long Description:
The merry-go-round is one of the first things people notice about Fuqua Park and Kiddieland as they drive past on US 81. To get to Kiddieland, turn on to W. Beech Ave. to enter the park.

Besides the marry-go-round, Kiddieland has a toy train which takes people on rides throughout Fuqua Park, an old-fashioned Tilt-a-Whirl, and one of those flying airplane rides which look kind of like Disneyland's flying elephants. Kiddieland is operated by Duncan's Kiwanis Club and can be rented out for special occasions.

Fuqua Park has a lot to offer besides Kiddieland. It also contains two museums, a large picnic gazebo, a retired train engine for climbing, a picnic pavilion built using a retired drilling rig, lots of green grass and trees, plus a small pond with waterfall.
