Lake Metroparks Farmpark is a family-oriented science and cultural...

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.

My kids never get tired of visiting the Farmpark. They have lots of fun activities related to animals and farming. A visit in late spring adds even more interest because of all the baby animals that have arrived. I enjoyed seeing a demonstration of a border collie herding a flock of sheep, just like in the movie "Babe". If you... More

What a great place to visit! It is too bad that they don't have a larger indoor arena for the horses to perform. It's a bit disappointing if you were expecting the Old Locust Farms Breeding Farm to have a larger horse program, but on the whole, it's interesting for those who are not familiar with livestock. The events that... More

I had taken my kids here years ago and recently took the grandkids. It is just so much fun. They get to milk cows, pet horses, see newborn piglets and calves. There is a corn maze and several playgrounds. There is so much indoors and out, both educational and fun. The price is great and you can't even see everything... More

A great place to take the kids, the Farm Park is affordable, educational, and always fun. Seeing and petting the animals is always our favorite part, and you can also learn about machinery, crops, and anything else farm-related. Don't miss milking a cow! And the indoor play area is great for letting the kids work off any extra energy.

Maybe you are a city kid who never even visited a working farm or if the farm brings back fond memories the Lake Metroparks Farmpark is a great family place to visit. There are special exhibits all year, but you can see the Horses (including Belgians), goats, sheep, chickens and cows everyday. There are even milking demonstrations a few times... More

Lake Farmpark is a wonderful place to visit as a family.....especially for the Halloween hayrides and Christmas lights!! Kids can learn so much about the lives of farmers and their animals.

Wonderful place to take the kids. There is so much to do and learn here for all ages, but most of all for kids. Our little guy got to milk a cow and we learned all about bees as the highlight of our last trip here.

This is a working farm. This is a great place to spend the day with kids. There are pony rides, wagon rides, and a dairy parlor. There are many hands on activities. It's reasonable to spend 5-6 hours there. There is a cafe, restrooms, and wagon rentals. They offer many special programs during the holidays. They have a nice picnic... More

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
