Great for small kids and also if you like the simple things in life. Nice park setting. Not many animals, but it's fun seeing your kids smiling and laughing and having fun with the animals. Nice back to nature moment.

There are not a million animals here, but the place is peaceful and free. It has a petting area, a coloring area, benches, and great volunteers. This place is perfect for small children.Thank City of Irving, and the Farmer who lends the animals.
