Nice place to visit. Get to see farm animals and trick dogs in this beautiful park. Better even if you have kids with you, they will love it.

We recently went to Purina Farm and had a great time! There was a petting zoo, a giant cat/dog house and a dog show. The hayride wasn't to bad either. It can be a bit crowded but that can be expected for such a good attraction. All in all a good time was had by all.

Great place to let the kids run around and don't miss the dog show. It can be crowded, but if you avoid the peak things at peak times (go inside during the dog shows) it's ok.
