  • It's hard to imagine a park any more suitable for young kids. Rutledge-Wilson has playground equipment, plenty of room to run, pet-able animals and even a fishing pond. It's a great place for birthday...  more »

  • Each year the display gets better and better. I enjoy all of the events at the farm. Very good for the community and neighborhood.  more »

  • My first pumpkin patch experience and it was SO CLASSIC! Tractor rides, pony rides, maize maze ;) animal farm, gardens, gift shop, art corners - it was beautiful! Big area with cute red barn, big pumpkin patch, and a little fair style tented food area with fresh kettle corn and iced tea and lemonade! Staff was really nice, they did a nice half and half unsweetened tea and unsweetened lemonade drink for $3 - worth it on this hot day! Highly recommend!
  • This was my first time with my wife and kids to come here for the pumpkin patch. The activities were fantastic, food was great, and best of all my kids were very happy and loved it. I definitely recommend bringing your family here. The staff is friendly, and will give you more information about other events throughout the year.
  • 10:13am on a Sunday...leaving empty handed. Felt like it was off season. No bounce houses open, no pony ride employee nor ponies. Hayrack and cow train ride noone to be found. People wondering around looking for something to do. Walk forever to find the pumpkin patch. Garbage cans over-flowing and sitting around. Dissapointed not recommended on a Sunday morning!
  • We go to the Haunted Trail every year, and it's always amazing! Thanks to all the people who donate their time to pull this off, it's my favorite fall activity. Also, the barn is fantastic, I love being able to love on the animals, including the couple of barn cats :)
  • Not a good experience when the pumpkin patch is a quarter mile away from parking and there are no carts or people willing to ignite a better way to get them to your vehicle besides many trips. Guess I'll go buy my 8 pumpkins elsewhere. Thanks for letting me waste an hour before letting me know all this.
