  • Love the indoor play area. Plus tons of outdoor activities! My baby enjoys the goats. The goats can enjoy a snack if you bring some baby carrots and check with the front desk before feeding.
  • This place was awesome! There was so much to do and see! In addition to having live goats and chickens, there are several historic buildings and a gazebo that you can walk through. There even was an herb garden. The only drawback was parking seemed to be limited. Fortunately we were able to find a spot.
  • Great for preschoolers, there is a dramatic play area as well as the goats. There are also some shorter walks that are good for little legs.
  • This park is gorgeous! Great place to take pictures. I actually had my graduation photos done here. There are also chickens and goats. Depending on the time you get there you can take a tour of the different houses that are there. There are also pecan trees and you can start to pick them in November
  • I love this park. Mostly, it's quiet, peaceful, serene. You can stroll around to clear your head. There are some neat little places to explore such as old buildings, a wooded trail to a small amphitheatre/bridge/pond, goats, and chickens. Rustic. I imagine weekends can be very busy, and watch for events such as weddings. Dog-friendly.
