The park featured a variety of rides and attractions for young children, including a carousel, a miniature train, a Ferris wheel, a paddle boat pond, a miniature golf course, a driving range, a swimming pool, and a skating rink.

It was a popular destination for families with young children and was used as a venue for day camp, boy/girl scout field trips and other events.

Kiddieland closed in 1977 due to financial difficulties.
