We took our children thinking that we'll be there for 1 hour and we stayed nearly 3 hours!

There are different animals to pet and feed, and arboretum, a hiking trail and a big ol' playground.

There are some vending machines or you can bring your own food and drinks. It can get hot so make sure to get hats, sun screen, etc.

The entrance is free and you only have to pay for food to feed the animals so it's a win win for all.

Admission is free! (yay!) the animals are well cared for, and the variety of animals to view and/or interact with is (almost) impressive for a city run attraction. Showing up in the spring is beautiful, and the farm workers bring out the various baby animals for people to see. The people working at the farm are knowledgeable, and friendly. There are places to picnic, and old barn with farm implements from days gone by (and lots of signs, so you can answer the kids questions about 'what is that?") Some of the animals can be fed with handfuls of feed purchased from the 'bubblegum' type vending machines, but it is a peaceful, beautiful place to get back to nature and the old days of farming that are slowly disappearing from our landscape. Plan to do a little walking to see everything (well marked trails, and maps available) handicapped accessible.

We love taking our 2 year old to the farm. It is well kept and clean. You can buy food to give to the animals. The playground is nice too!

We LOVED this place. Family friendly and doesn't cost anything. We came from Indianapolis, Indiana and will be back to visit. The kids and us really couldn't get enough. What a great place. Excellent job

This is a basic see and feed the animals for young children. The park mainly contains a variety of birds and some farm animals. Touching in some areas is ok. benches and tables are available for snack breaks and lunches. It is a continuous destination for young kindergarten and elementary schoolers. A nice place to learn about wildlife in an easy walkable setting,
