Took a group of preschool children here. Nice shelters with tables for picnics. Plenty of garbage cans. Bathroom clean. Fun playground equipment. Also enjoyed the petting zoo. Peacocks, goats, ducks, turkeys, miniature horses and llama, alpacas. Very fun place for families.

Came back to visit great grandma, but had to spend some time at Sibley Park Zoo. It is a beautiful park, the grandkids had so much fun and they enjoyed the animals too. Great place for hiking too.

Small farm animal “zoo” with brand new farm themed play structures. Very clean and easy to walk around with young kids. I would say most kids when we were there were babies to 7 years old. Worth going on a nice day.

Great park for kids of all ages to play at. The zoo is nothing fantastic, it features regular farm animals. For only a quarter you can get animal treats to feed the animals. It is a huge park and is great for family get togethers.
