Overview

Briarwood Ranch is an Auto Safari Park offering a scenic, four-mile safari through beautiful hills and pasture lands where you will experience animals from six continents. You can take your time studying their behavior from the safety of your own car and take lots of photographs. The park also offers tractor pulled wagon rides, a store, restrooms, a picnic area, and a petting zoo. With all this, you have a great location for a birthday party or family reunion. Our wagon rides are by appointment only.

What a surprise! Taking the grands was perfect, but I would go again even without them. The first "must" is purchasing plenty of food to share among the wide variety of animals. Be sure to start by taking a leisurely stroll around the displays closest...More

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
