  • This farm in the middle of Springfield work very hard and always host amazing events. Even though cost for them to provide these events absolutely has increased...they seem to understand it's about the kids and keep things very affordable. I started taking my 4 kids around 2009 or so. .and it quickly became a holiday tradition. They have so many great memories even when just coming to play or fish. Thanks for being a great place for family :)
  • My boys and I loved this park! We came on a super hot July day so there weren't many animals out, but my boys had a great time exploring and playing on the playground. They playground has a great design with lots of places to climb and slide. My boys played here for hours and would have stayed longer if I let them! There are good spots for parents to sit and there is a neat covered picnic area. Next time we will bring their fishing poles as there are nice spots around the pond to stand and fish.
