“Great for little kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Easy, free activity for little ones. We had birthday parties there for both of my kids when they turned 3. Kids can run around and see a variety of animals -- fun times. The carousel and playground are nice too. I especially like that the animals look well cared-for.

“Back to my roots”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

If you have ever lived near a farm, or even if you haven't, this is a great place to bring your kids and/or your dogs to experience a working farm. There are often baby animals in the farm park as well as tractor rides, and there are nice trails to hike on with your dog. Horses are present, and fun to watch! I'm from the Midwest, so it a little slice of home every time I visit here.

“Fun days with kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

This place is awesome! Kids love visiting every time we go there. Around this time they have newborn baby piglets, and other baby animals. They have hay rides and a carousel. Little gift shop carries ice cream and toys and stuff - kids love it, and parents are happy.

“You cant go wrong for the price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Its free,,you can take as little or as long as you want. Spring is a great time to visit...all the baby animals...most will come right up for a pet and a blade of grass...There is a country store, and a tractor ride and a carrousel on weekends, those have small fees...there is also an equestrian center on site where, if lucky you can catch a horse show, or class...very cool little stop of history and fun

“Great for the Kids and Dogs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

We go there regularly to run the dogs on the trails and through Farm to see the animals. It seems are new baby animals are born every month. Kids love the animals, merry-go-round, and activities. The park hosts horse shows and dog training, both of which are fun to watch. The woodland trails are our favorite. There's always something going on, and the park has a very interesting history dating back to the depression era.
