Great place to take the kids, especially under 10. Get your eyes off the screen and enjoy nature at its best. Love it in the spring when all the baby animals are at their cutest!

This is a beautiful place to visit with your kids. We took our one year old son and he loved it. The cows to the horses to the fowl. Bring your kids, brings lunch, and enjoy the atmosphere and animals.
