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

I went here with my son's kindergarten class. I was very disappointed. A lot of the buildings were closed. The carriage museum consisted of a few buggies in a barn. The pony rides only had 2 ponys and were closed half the day so they could rest, (I am all for them resting, they should just get more ponys), so... More

We came here with our 7 and 10 year olds and they had a lot of fun. This is a mixture of a living history museum and a fun park. For example, the Early Streets museum is very educational as you see what different types of shops looked like over 100 years ago. And you get to try your hand... More

This was a nice place to bring the family. It was great that we just had to pay one entrance fee and everything in the park was included! No need to pay extra for a train ride, paddle boat ride..etc.

This place includes education, with hands on learning, with lots of open space for burning off energy. A train, petting zoo, pony ride, and carousel add to the fun. Entrance fee is affordable for all families.

I took my 21 month old here for a quick day trip and was quite pleasantly surprised. There was a lot to do and look at including a carasoul, pony ride, train ride, paddle boats, park play area, animal nook, etc. They also offer food for an additional fee.

Although earlier in my life I lived in Aurora, I never considered Blackberry Farms (or Pioneer Park as I remembered it) as a wedding venue. But, it makes a lovely outdoor wedding venue. The gazebo is large and perfect for the ceremony and dancing. An addition of a tent for dining was all that was needed. The staff were helpful... More

We took our 19 month old grandson to Blackberry Farm for a few hours. The area is clean and well maintained. We liked that you didn't get nickeled and dimed once you were in there. Everything is included in the price except for the food of course. There is a small train, tractor/wagon rides, pony rides, carousel and paddle boats.... More
