To be honest Makiba Park is not really a park but a pull-off rest area from the road connecting Kobuchizawa down in the valley (with its highway exit and train terminal) with the local resort area around Kiyosato. But you may enjoy it as having just a little bit extra - including the "soft-ice" cones in summer, great views any time, and a small roadside restaurant and gift shop. Kids can meet the sheep and baby goats at the edge of the pastures. Several working farms are nearby - introduced to the poor hardscrabble area by American educator Paul Rusch in the 1930s. He built an experimental farm, schools and a chapel to help improve livelihoods of the local people, many of whom were forcefully resettled there when dams were built in the upper Tama River. Stop by and admire his legacy at Seisenryo - where you can buy fresh dairy products and stay overnight in the rustic lodge that offers nighttime stargazing and nature walking tours. Even an Anglican Chapel, as Paul was a leader of the Society of St. Andrew in Japan.

牧場公園はゆっくり楽しめました。
暑くても、涼しい。山を見える、緑が美しい、動物さんおりっ子で可愛い。ソフトアイスも美味しい。是非行ってみてください。

What it suprised me it was the fact I visited it for free, and could get near the animals, and it was pacific.
Clean sky, fresh air, green view, mountains, amazing.
I recommend you to visit if you have time.
