Description: Lake Metroparks Farmpark is a family-oriented science and cultural center...
Lake Metroparks Farmpark is a family-oriented science and cultural center devoted to agriculture, farming and country life. Visitors can experience milking hands-on with our dairy cows. Machine-milking is also demonstrated. Learn how cheese is made and on weekends and during special events you even may help make ice cream the old-fashioned way! Discover pigs, sheep, chickens, rabbits and even a turkey In the Well Bred Shed. Horse- or tractor-drawn wagon rides are the mode of transportation throughout the park. Meet dozens of breeds of livestock including llamas, alpacas, chickens, pigs and goats in the Barnyard. The arena is home to the horses at Farmpark. We have all sizes including draft horses, light horses and miniatures. Explore the Plant Science Center which houses the Great Tomato Works hydroponic exhibit, and a greenhouse. Watch the border collie at Farmpark help to keep the sheep together as they move from one end of the field to the other in our sheep herding demonstrations (offered mid-April through mid-October, weather permitting). The fleece from the sheep is used for its fibers to make sweaters, fiber-art, and other wearables. Watch the sheep be shorn and touch the fleece and feel the lanolin on your fingers during sheep shearing demonstrations (offered mid-May through Memorial Day). Discover modern and antique tractors and farm equipment used on the farm in the Farm Technology building. Harvest activities take place in Field Crop. Discover corn fields, wheat fields, and learn how apple cider is pressed and taste apple butter seasonally. See hands-on how the soil is tilled, wheat and corn fields are cared for and harvested by the farmer. Put your sense of direction to the test as you wind your way through a multitude of twists and turns through a three-acre corn maze. The maze is open daily mid-August through mid-October, weather and field conditions permitting.

A first impression is a lasting impression. This was our first time visiting the farm. We stopped by to get information, and the women at the customer service area were very rude to my family. When we received a brochure, my family and I stepped away from the counter for privacy so we could to talk it over by the... More

This is a great family experience for those of us living in suburbia to really get a little glimpse into the farm life. It's not too big, so even little ones or those pusing strollers/pulling wagons can get around the whole place without too much walking. They have various farm animals on display, many of which can be touched. Pigs,... More

We lived in this area all these years and finally decided to visit this farmpark. They were having a special event with antique tractors, and it was a beautiful fall day. AAA gets you a small discount, but not too expensive to begin with. We walked the corn maze, took wagon rides with both a tractor and horses pulling. We... More

We visited the farm park during the week. We were able to visit all of the locations- including milking a cow. A bit smelly (it is a farm after all), but great experience! Will definitely visit again!

I visited for the first time in May and again at the beginning of August. Lake Metroparks continues to please me. What a great opportunity for people to get close to animals. Our son is too young to appreciate a lot of what the farmpark has to offer (tractor pulled wagon rides, ice cream, etc.) but we had a WONDERFUL... More

All the metroparks are great! This one is unique and everyone enjoys getting up close with the animals. You can milk a cow, pet a horse and watch demonstrations. They offer special events all year long.

We stopped by here to pass a morning on our annual summer road trip. We wanted an activity that would wear our kids out before we spent several hours in the car. The Farmpark certainly fit the bill! Our kids were excited from the minute we arrived and we spent a long time in the indoor play area that had... More

We needed something to do and decided to head out. It was a nice visit (I am not sure I would go often) and we even got a chance to milk a cow! Kids had fun. Worth a visit.

Looking at places to visit on our route around the states, we fell upon this educational farm. I am so glad e did, the staff are friendly and seem to really enjoy teaching you about the different animals and how farms work. There are several 'shows' including being able to milk a cow or making icecream the old way (which... More
