  • Great quiet spot for a picnic. Plenty of space for kids to roam. They'll love the goats. Main highlight of this park is the story of farming in North Carolina. I learned a lot about the evolution of o...  more »

  • Such a beautiful gem of our city! I just found out about it and can't believe I didn't know of it sooner. My toddler and I had a great time at the indoor play area (pretend kitchen, farm and supermarket toys) before exploring the outdoor grounds. I had read to bring treats for the goats to feed them, so I brought a bunch of carrots with us (an employee also suggested apples). There were about 6 goats we could feed, and my son loved it. The goats are very friendly and enjoyed being petted. There's also a barn with an old tractor and life-size animal sculptures, chickens, and plenty of room to run around. I appreciated all of the informational plaques and exhibits in the main building — such cool history that has been preserved so well here. We ended our visit by walking on the trails behind the shaded parking area. The staff we met were exceptionally friendly and we were some of the very few visitors on a late weekday summer afternoon. I'm already planning our next visit here!
  • Great place to visit during the weekday. Nice walking paths. Neat to watch the goats and chickens.
  • It's one of the nicest parks in the Raleigh area. If you're used to Millbrook and Pullen, come here for a change of scenery.
  • Dog-friendly. Love this place. Beautiful landscape. Goats are fun. Places to sit and chill out. Nice strolls for families and dogs. Small museum. Low-key unless there is an event, then parking can be difficult.
  • From the little bit we got to see; it seems nice and clean. Check the hours; they seem to close a little early.

Where to stay in Raleigh

Staying downtown provides the most convenient access to Raleigh's leading attractions. You'll find a couple of large, efficient hotels here--they feature a large volume of beds. The area around the North Campus of North Carolina State University lies just west of downtown and features a handful of additional hotels. A cluster of national chain hotels and motels lies in the midtown area north of downtown. There are a couple of bus lines that provide easy access to downtown from here, so this area serves as a suitable option if you cannot find accommodation in the city center. The intersection of I-440 and Route 70 to the northwest of downtown features numerous hotels and motels, but these largely cater to business travelers who require convenient access to both downtown and the airport.
