While visiting our kids in Hampton VA a couple of weeks ago, we celebrated our granddaughter's first birthday here under a covered pavilion. It's free so it's first come first serve so my step son had to go early to reserve the site and decorate it. There are no balloons allowed to protect the animals that they have on the farm. Upon entering the farm there is an amazing playground on a bed of mulch. It's HUGE! There is food that you can buy to feed the animals and gardens you can stroll through. Be sure and visit the gift shop as this is the way they're able to keep Bluebird Gap Farm free for everyone (besides donations). I believe the animals are all rescue animals that are rehabilitating. We saw one goose with broken wings. Oh and while we were there, the restrooms were stocked with toilet paper and fairly clean. I can tell they really try to keep the place clean and presentable.

Terrific for anyone, singles, couples, and families. For over 50 years, Blue Bird Gap Farm has been a great getaway for anyone who appreciates animals. You'll find everything here, from the most gorgeous peacocks and peahens, to horses, cows, pigs and birds.
Admission is free, though donations are accepted. Plan to spend several hours and to explore the walking trails, which take you out to the pond area and even the beehives. This is a true gem of Hampton, something you just do not find in any other big city.
It's a can't miss.

People say this place is great but I just don't see it honestly. The animals are fun too look at but whenever I go I just can't get over the smell!! It absolutely stinks so bad it's suffocating it's terrible and unbearable and don't even think about coming on a windy day..They have a small playground which is good for kids and all but this place just isn't for me .

This is a great place to spend the better portion of a day. Feed and pet the animals, bring a picnic lunch, and let the kids play on the playground too! This is a great place to go for families and play date meetups. We really like it.
