Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead, Overland Park

Must see · Zoo · Zoo / Aquarium
Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead celebrates farming in the early 20th century. Replica buildings include a one-room schoolhouse, Native American dwellings, a town area with a general store and bank, as well as a fishing pond. Kids can interact with some of the 200 animals--feeding goats a bottle and casting a line into the lake are favorite activities. Don't miss the dairy barn, where you can try your hand at milking (and if you're lucky, you'll see a live milking demonstration). A nature trail winds through the farmstead and sculptured gardens designed for kids. Adults may like to tour the woods on a horse-drawn wagon ride, while kids can enjoy a pony ride.

  • Childhood memories are made here. When I reflect on my mom taking me and my brother to this once small petting farm, I realize this is where my love of a hands on experience at every zoo I've visited in my life sparks from. I was ecstatic, even on one of the hottest days of the summer, to revisit and share the experience with my daughter, niece, and nephew. Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead has more than doubled in size since I was a child, and has more than quadrupled in charm. This is a nice local spot to bring children to learn how to milk a cow, feed the chickens, bottle feed a goat, and take a fun hay ride.
  • Farm experience, relatively inexpensive. Almost better than going to the zoo. Many hands on activities for children. Tons of animals to pet and learn about. Fish weren't biting much today, but we did at least catch one. Feeding the pygmy goats was the highlight for my kiddos. Definitely will return!
  • This place is amazing!!! Perfect for women and children, you are definitely safe here. Amazing for EVERY age! Animals, playgrounds, beautiful gardens. You can easily spend several hours here. Also good food options for babies, children and adults.
  • This is an amazing place to take the family - it is clean, well-priced, just the right size for little people and grandparents alike. The food was delicious, and the cost was great, especially considering what you pay other places that are similar. Make sure you bring quarters to feed the animals! Baby goat pen alone was worth the price of admission - sweet little babies running around who love pets.
  • This place is more enjoyable than the zoo for many reasons. It is very clean, most animals have a great enclosure. The enclosures for the bobcat and the raptors are the only reason I gave an imperfect score, I get it that they would otherwise not be visible, but to me that would be fine. The small trail through the flora sanctuary is beautiful. Great maintenance and keepers make this an exemplary place for kids to enjoy animals first hand. There is a lot to see in a beautiful but small patch of area. We will definitely return.
