Even do the farm was closed because of a dinner party in the evening, we received a guided tour from Catherine that was really worth our trip. Excellent explanation and we really enjoyed our walk...

We spent the afternoon at the Volkening Heritage Farm. We saw all the animals, watched a volunteer feed an 8 wk old calf in arms reach, toured the barn and other buildings and hiked (very easy hiking) trails. It really is a beautiful (and huge) park for being right in the muddle of suburban Schaumburg. Our kids ages 9, 12,... More

This place was a enjoyable morning/afternoon with my 2 year old. We are visiting from out of state and needed something to do. Thankfully, the weather was beautiful and my son was able to run around and use up some energy and see a few things along the way. Specifically, he liked the ducks at the pond, seeing the cows...

This guided tour was awesome! We visited the log cabin and made homemade butter, applesauce and cornbread in a cast iron skillet. Don't forget to purchase the maple syrup, yummy.

Pleasant staff and beautiful grounds right in the middle of suburbia! Great for all seasons. We had several field trips there over the years and the programs are quite varied. Unfortunately you can still hear the traffic noise in all that tranquility.

We wanted to get out of our hotel for a while, so we this nature preserve was a great way to get the toddler energies out! Unfortunately mapquest gave us wrong directions and we ended up in a little condo area. However fortunately, after calling the nice lady at the nature center, we were able to get there without any...

Spring Valley is a great nature sanctuary. The grounds are peaceful and beautiful. However, take a walk through the farm house or education center. We found that to be really cool, too. Definitely worth checking out and the price is right.

Many paths, a working farm, and nature areas to enjoy. Kids and adult classes are available. It is tucked away and you feel like you are in the country. Many times during the year, they have special days that draw many people. It is educational and fun.
