Lake Metroparks Farmpark is a family-oriented science and cultural center devoted to agriculture, farming and country life.

Visitors can experience milking hands-on with our dairy cows. Machine-milking is also demonstrated. Learn how cheese is made and on weekends and during special events you even may help make ice cream the old-fashioned way! Discover pigs, sheep, chickens, rabbits and even a turkey In the Well Bred Shed.

Horse- or tractor-drawn wagon rides are the mode of transportation throughout the park. Meet dozens of breeds of livestock including llamas, alpacas, chickens, pigs and goats in the Barnyard.

The arena is home to the horses at Farmpark. We have all sizes including draft horses, light horses and miniatures.

Explore the Plant Science Center which houses the Great Tomato Works hydroponic exhibit, and a greenhouse.

Watch the border collie at Farmpark help to keep the sheep together as they move from one end of the field to the other in our sheep herding demonstrations (offered mid-April through mid-October, weather permitting).

The fleece from the sheep is used for its fibers to make sweaters, fiber-art, and other wearables. Watch the sheep be shorn and touch the fleece and feel the lanolin on your fingers during sheep shearing demonstrations (offered mid-May through Memorial Day).

Discover modern and antique tractors and farm equipment used on the farm in the Farm Technology building.

Harvest activities take place in Field Crop. Discover corn fields, wheat fields, and learn how apple cider is pressed and taste apple butter seasonally. See hands-on how the soil is tilled, wheat and corn fields are cared for and harvested by the farmer.

Put your sense of direction to the test as you wind your way through a multitude of twists and turns through a three-acre corn maze. The maze is open daily mid-August through mid-October, weather and field conditions permitting.

Wonderful working farm that offers programs and experiences that educate the public. My family has attended many programs within the facility and has never been disappointed. Our favorites include Haunted Hayrides and Country Lights, but would highly recommend just a regular day visit as well. The main building has a dairy area where you can milk and pet cows and...

This is a working farm with lots of other attractions as well. We brought our two year old who loved the dairy farm and ask the sheep and pigs, but I would say it is perfect for ages 4 and up. There is a lot of science and things to learn for the older kids. They were also building a... More

Love going to Lake Farm park, especially for special events like the October Village Peddler, and thr Christmas events. Also enjoy the Quilt show in the spring. There is so much to do and see during any visit you could easily spend all day

Went to the park for Horsefest with family. In spite of a chilly wet day, we all had a great time (especially my 3 year old niece). The staff is wonderful, the facility itself appears to be well run and in very good shape, and the shows were very good. Looking at the schedule of future scheduled events, our family... More

We have been going to the Farmpark for 4 years. We live close by, so we decided to start volunteering for some of their events. Great staff to work with and enjoy all the activities they plan. There is plenty of things to do for kids as well as adults and they are open year round. They recently opened a... More

My kids never get tired of visiting the Farmpark. They have lots of fun activities related to animals and farming. A visit in late spring adds even more interest because of all the baby animals that have arrived. I enjoyed seeing a demonstration of a border collie herding a flock of sheep, just like in the movie "Babe". If you... More
