The Monroe County Sheriff's Office Children's Animal Park is located on the grounds of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office Stock Island Detention Center, at 5501 College Road. The farm began as a haven for homeless animals underneath a jail facility. This ingenious use of abandoned space should be seen as a model around the country mixing love of animals (often... More

This is a marvelous place to visit and, while there are no lions and tigers or elephants. There is a remarkable collection of animals, some not likely to found anywhere else in the Florida Keys. The Sheriff's Farm is usually open to the public on Sundays and is well worth the visit.

What an unusual collection of unique animals the Sheriff's Office has managed to put together. Everything from a huge bull to a tiny chameleon. There are pigs, rabbits, llamas, birds, sloths, goats, sheep.... I can't remember them all. No matter how young or old you are, you will enjoy visiting this farm. One of my favorites..... the miniature horses, that... More

Ok, it's small, and it's quick, but on the Sunday's when the Animal Farm is open, it's a great visit for a half hour or so. Te care of these animals, and their obvious genuine interest are a real pleasure - one you'd never expect to find under a jail...

If you have kids, and you like to see a variety of animals, go to the farm. You will see a little of a lot! It is free, but a donation to help take care of the animals is nice. You can even pet several of them
