Pirates’ Cove Children’s Theme Park
Though smoke-breathing dragons and fearsome pirates may be the stuff of scary stories, it's all just child's play at Pirates' Cove. Designed by the Elk Grove Park District for kids aged 1–9, the pint-sized amusement park tempts budding minds to explore and stretch their imaginative powers. From the deck of a recreated 18th-century pirate ship, captains and first mates can survey the surrounding playground and carousel to plan the location of their next raid. The park’s pond hosts an armada of paddleboats, encouraging daydreams of naval exploration, and the child-sized Castle of Camelot is ripe for a pillage-themed playdate or Model UN pirate tribunal. An onsite concession stand fuels spirited romps, and a picnic area is available for feasts brought from home.
Though Pirates’ Cove Children’s Theme Park sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
