Memphis Kiddie Park

Who can ride?

Most of our rides – all except for the Train, Merry-Go-Round and Little Dipper -- are restricted by the State of Ohio to children less than 50 inches tall as measured at the park while wearing shoes. Taller guests, including adults, are welcome to ride the Big Creek & Memphis Railway, Merry-Go-Round and Little Dipper.

For the safety of all guests, Memphis Kiddie Park staff reserves the final determination of whether or not a child is too tall to ride.

How many rides do you have?

This year we have 10. We are currently shopping for a ride to replace the worn out hand cars to bring us back to 11.

Is it true that ride tickets never expire?

Yes, it is. Our regularly priced ride tickets never expire. And since there is no gate fee and parking is free, you never have to worry about a sudden weather change or a tired child knowing that your tickets remain valid for a future visit. We often have mothers come with their children using tickets left over from when mom was a little girl!

What kind of neighborhood are you in?

Memphis Kiddie Park is located in Brooklyn, a western suburb of Cleveland. Brooklyn is a quiet and beautiful community where the pride of its residents can be seen in manicured lawns and modern shopping centers. As a family-owned and operated business, we couldn’t be part of a more ideal community for a day of fun!

How many tickets do you need for each ride?

Each ride requires one ticket per rider. On the Merry-Go-Round, a ticket is not required for parents who stand to hold a child seated on a horse.

Can I bring food or beverages into the Park?

No outside food or beverages are permitted in the Park with limited exceptions. With the heightened awareness of food allergies, we have to be careful and, for the safety and comfort of all of our guests, we simply do not allow outside food and beverage brought into the Park. Exceptions may be made for infant formula and those with special dietary needs associated with allergies and medical conditions. Please refer to our Special Dietary Needs Policy for a full explanation of the rules.

So as to assure all guests of an alcohol free environment, beverages may not be brought into the Park under any circumstance.

Memphis Kiddie Park is immediately adjacent to a beautiful Cleveland Metropark with picnic grounds. We encourage families who wish to bring their own food to enjoy it there either before or after their visit.

What about birthday cake?

Because our concession stand does not currently offer birthday cakes, we allow guests who have pre-reserved their birthday party with us to bring their own cake for guests of their party. And because we have very limited space in our kitchen, we can only hold small cakes and cupcakes at room temperature and small containers of ice-cream in our freezer. We cannot accommodate ice-cream cakes of any size nor large sheet cakes, even at room remperature. For more information about hosting your next birthday party at Memphis Kiddie Park, visit our Birthday Party page.

Are there any rules about what guests must wear?

Since we cater to families with very young children, guests are asked to dress respectfully. Local and State Laws require that all guests have a top and bottom over any diaper or underwear and shoes. Flip flops are OK, but probably not the safest choice for kids climbing in and out of the rides. Guests wearing offensive T-shirts or other objectionable clothing will be turned away.

Does Memphis Kiddie Park make donations?

Memphis Kiddie Park has been a proud supporter of countless non-profit charities and organizations in Northeast Ohio throughout the years. And we continue to do so. Here are some general guidelines:

  • Because the number of requests we receive each year, we try and limit our support to 501(c)3 organizations which directly work with or support young children. 
  • Only donation requests submitted in writing will be considered. Use official letterhead, if available, and be sure to specify your 501(c)3 information. Requests should be mailed to the corporate offices, the address of which can be found on the Contacts page.
  • Our donations consist of ride tickets and free games of miniature golf.
  • Please understand that due to the many requests received, we will not respond to emails or telephone requests.
