Lot of farm's animals, big playground and nature... even parking if you are early. Bring a picnic and sit by the trees... and let the kids play... What more can you ask for kids (and parents) on a nice sunny day.

I liked the children's theatre and playground, but our animal-loving 7-year-old found some of the other activities a little disappointing - the petting zoo had only goats and pot-bellied pigs, and the "farm" took about 30 seconds to visit.

We went for the 1st time and we liked it a lot. The parks for the kids are great and the animals seem in good condition. We didn't know what to expect and we're going back for a picnic next time. The park was very clean also

I enjoyed it a lot. But you have to be a nature lover to enjoy this place. I suggest you go for a picnic with family or friends it can be great

It's perfect for children: they have a nice play ground, lots of flowers, a man-made lake with canoe rentals. It is beautiful. There is a little electric train, which for a nominal 3$ fee you get to ride around in it and my 2 granddaughters loved it. So much so, that they begged to go a 2nd time. There is... More
