The gardens were beautiful but the highlight is the petting zoo with farm animals you can feed (25 cents for food). The play area is for several generations. There is fitness equipment for adults and teens and two other areas for kids depending on their ages. This seems to be a popular park but is big enough that you don't... More

Cute, kind of petting park. It is not a zoo. More like baby farm animals. Chickens, goats, sheep, a pig. Took 5 min to walk through. It's more of a cute playground area w a couple of farm animals to look at while you swing.

My boys (3 &6) love coming here! They could care less about the animals but love playing on all the different playgrounds. There are three or four different play areas, all very close to each other. It's very well maintained and one of the best parks we've been to.

The zoo has quite a few animals. There is also a great farm-themed playground that will keep the kids busy for quite a long time.

The perfect place to take your children. Farm animals, play ground equipment and tractors to climb on. Lots of paths to walk or ride bikes. Nature to explore. This is defiantly a must stop in Mankato. Bring some quarters if you want to feed the goats. There are shelters if you want to bring a picnic lunch. Don't miss this... More
