We were visiting Minnesota on Thanksgiving break and we got a wonderful holiday surprise. The park was beautiful and worth the wait in line. Go and see this wonderful holiday tradition. Bring cans of food and see them before they are gone.

We did a drive thru to see the fall flowers and see how the park had changed in 40 years. There was a wedding going on in one area. Nice drive.

We had a great time here with our daughter. There are lots of animals to see and some to pet. Cows, pot belly pig, ponies, goats, sheep, etc. The flowers are absolutely gorgeous. They are a mix of perennials and annuals here at this park. There is also a beautiful Koi pond. The park has a farm themed playground for... More

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.
