Bubbling water fountains accompany the pop of steel putters against golf balls on Colasanti's 18-hole indoor mini-golf course. Players of all ages putt through an exotic garden, home to creatures such as koi fish and red-eared slider turtles. Children also frolic through the park's other kid-sized attractions—colliding safely inside bumper cars, spinning around in a cartoon caterpillar or bumble bee, or climbing aboard a small mining train for thrilling rides. Alternatively, they can bounce and climb inside three themed inflatable play areas: Mickey's Clubhouse, My Little Farm, and Train Express.
Kids' rides and inflatables are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and bumper cars and the mini roller coaster are open from noon to 5 p.m.
Colasanti's Tropical Gardens
For just a moment, visitors to Colasanti's Tropical Gardens might believe they've been whisked away to Madagascar: the call of ring-tailed lemurs and the squawk of parrots echoes around acres of exotic plants. And yet this tropical locale is nestled much closer to home—just outside of Kingsville. The 35-acre family farm keeps visitors entertained year-round with 15 temperature-controlled greenhouses filled with flowering equatorial plants and cacti, a petting farm that brings kids face-to-face with foreign animals without having to go through an ambassador, and carnival attractions.
- Petting farm home to pygmy goats and llamas as well as a 10-foot alligator
- Kid-friendly rides and inflatable play areas
- Indoor mini-golf course and arcade with more than 40 classic and video games
- Farm restaurant serves buffets and family-style dinners
Who They Are
In 1924, at the age of 22, Italian-born Aleutario Colasanti followed his dreams of a better life to Kingsville. Facing anti-immigrant sentiments and financial trouble, Alex only worked harder to eke out a living as a farmer. On a fateful trip to Detroit in 1932, he met—and fell in love with—Emma Colagiavanni. Despite her parents' protests, they eloped and started a family, and in 1941, they settled on what would soon become the Colasanti farm. Beginning with just one greenhouse and a small fruit stand, the family's operation grew over the next 30 years to host vegetables, exotic fruit trees, and a conspicuous lack of albatrosses. Though Alex and Emma have since passed, their legacy lives on through their grandchildren and the expansive Colasanti's Tropical Gardens.
