Having a few days left of summer vacation, I wanted to do something fun with the kids. A friend recommended Blackberry Farm, and I thought I would give it a try. The website does not do it justice. It was way better than I expected. I was expecting a small, rather run down facility with activities geared towards toddlers. I... More

I love coming here with my kids. They have so much to do and the playground is a ton of fun! Love going on the boat and train rides too!

The birthday party package is great. All of the children had a blast. We are doing it again this year. You get about an hour to use the private birthday area. (They do not have an electrical outlet nearby) There is plenty to do. You can take a trip back to history by visiting an old schoolhouse. You can ride... More

This venue is probably best for kids up to age 13 or so , but nonetheless it has a train ride, carousel, hay wagon ride, paddle boats plus a recreation of a town from the late 1800s. There is also a building that houses old horse carriages. It is a nice place to spend a serene afternoon.

I was really impressed at how clean and neat this attraction was kept. Everything was in good working order. There were lots of activities for young children. All the people were very nice. Food was readily available and reasonably priced. Lots of picnic tables. There is a small train to ride, a hay wagon, playgrounds, farm animals, and pedal toy... More

This park, owned by the Aurora Park District has sooooo much to offer. When you enter, there is a back in time neighborhood of store fronts with antiques of days gone by. And a souvenir shop too. Walk a little farther, and you can see an old school house, and a saddlery shop. There is a great little railroad to... More

This place is amazing! Very impressed with everything and highly recommend for families with kids. Every single employee we interacted with was very friendly and demonstrated excellent customer service. Grounds, landscaping, and facilities were maintained in impeccable condition. We loved how you pay one very reasonable admission fee and then get unlimited rides so the kids can pick and choose... More

While visiting family in the area, we went to Blackberry Farm for one of their Thursday evening concerts. What a treat! This is such a nice place! The weather was perfect, the music was fabulous, and we just had a great time!

Lets start with the cost. For a non resident it was $15 total for both myself and a child. This was very reasonable considering everything you get. What is it you get well you get a couple museum type exhibits you can go through (one about the circus and one that is an exhibit on what a street would have... More
