Serene.

The animal park has a very cozy touch to it. It's not big, but there is lots of access to view each animal. We were there with kids ranging from 1 year to 14. They all enjoyed it. I highly recommend this place. Lovely people, lovely place.

The kids loved it. For an out of the way petting zoo, they sure had some nice exotic animals. The owners seem to love what they do.

We spent several hours at Bailiwick Animal Park with our extended family. It was great! The older kids and young adults had a great time horseback riding, and the little ones (ages 1-3) loved the farm animals, pony rides, and the playground sandy area. There were different climbing toys for the babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. An added plus - the... More

The kids love the sandbox/playground and looking at the animals. The adults had a great time on the horseback trail. The staff is courteous, nice, and did us a great favor that we asked of them very graciously.

Visited with the grandchildren (ages 4,4 & 5). Perfect age for this park. Loved feeding the baby goats by hand and the other animals as well. The kids loved playing on the large model of Noah's Ark. The horse swings were cute but 1 of the 2 was broken. The play area is a nice size. The animal area is... More

It was a gem in the middle of no where. It looks like they took over from where the Catskill Game Farm left off. The kids loved the animals. Next time we plan to do the horse back riding but ran out of time.

What a worthwhile place to visit! We had such a wonderful two hour trail ride with Troy! We visited on a weekday and had a private tour through the woods, up and down the mountain(beautiful scenic overlook), and through wild flower meadows. It didn't matter what our riding experience was, the horse and pace was adjusted accordingly. We also visited... More

I had thought from the description that this company took over the old Catskill Game Farm but I didn't see anything here that looked familiar. Even the Catskill Fame Farm wasn't the best as far as zoos go, but this place is far worse on many levels. The animals were all in small pens, some without water (it's mid-July), and... More

After an unfortunately rainy trip to Woodstock,NY on the day we were leaving, my fiance´ and I, came to the Animal Park to enjoy what little sunshine we got. We took the 2 hour horseback ride with Stephanie and had a great time. Stephanie was super personable and it was obvious that she loved her job and loved riding. We... More
