  • Took American friends to see it. A nice stroll with some activity engagements. A daughter of the owners joined us for a time. She is the future of that business.
  • Very nice park with plenty of trails to walk around on and animals to see. We saw a horse, a donkey, many goats, two sleeping pigs, some cows in pasture, and some beautiful chickens. The grounds can be a little hilly so that keeps it interesting and the grass is well cut and springy. A nice lady who works there gave us some treats to feed to the goat.
  • Wonderful park and working farm. Lots to see and enjoy. Trails for walking, riding, and just walking your dog.
  • Great place for a picnic or a hike to clear your mind. Beautiful flowers all around. Barnyard animals as well.
  • Great farm to bring your kids to. My kids love getting the stamps in the barn and going down to the lake. Most of the time, the goats and sheep's are right there for them to pet!
