This is literally one of my families favorite places to go! We even go in the winter time! We love the farm and seeing the animals. We go down to the creek and the kids romp around in it. Then we walk over to the lake. We have fished in it. We walk around it. We have even walked most... More

Carriage Hill is always a go to for us when we are looking for something fun yet inexpensive to do. You need to make sure you get there early enough to see everything and check the hours online before you go. I made the mistake of thinking they were open until 5 year round and that wasn't the case.

This park is great for families, hikers and horseback riders. The parks department has done an excellent job. I wish I lived closer and I would go all the time.

Stopped at this park for a stroll with my 2-year old daughter. The park was very clean and peaceful. Walked around the pond, on the trails and docks. We were able to collect acorns, walnut shells, and lots of natural habitat. There were men fishing on the lake. Had a nice relaxing time there.

A great place for all ages. It is a living park. This working farm has many displays with period dressed volunteers explaining the history of each item highlighted. For, example children are permitted to help milk cows during milking time with the help of the volunteer. In other buildings, you may find someone cooking or quilting. If you time it... More

This was a well kept, nice little park. I was hoping for more to look at. But overall it was a nice stop with my 3 kids.

We had our family photos taken here in the Fall. They turned out very nice. There were several groups doing the very same thing.
