Activities for every season. Petting zoo and beautiful (small) garden in the summer, sledding hill and amazing Kiwanis lights display in winter. The hilltop pergola area is nice for a picnic and there is also a playground, a fountain, shelter facilities, softball fields, and a section of paved walking paths.

Sibley Park Zoo is so much fun for both kids and adults. They have a few animals that you can feed and have a beautiful koi fish pond. The playground is so adorable as it is a farm scene. It is easy to spend hours at this poace.

My granddaughter's used to live with in walking distance and on almost every visit we would walk over to visit the animals. They have now moved a bit further away but we still visit. They also have a great room for rent for parties and such which we have also used the last two years for the girl's birthday. Great... More

This isn't really much of a zoo but it's still fun. There is a great playground with all sorts of slides and swings based on a farm scene. The animals are farm type animals. Pigs, goats, cows, sheep, horses, rabbits, and a peacock. There are fish in a pond as well. Baby goats and little pigs are always very cute.... More

I lived here for seven years and never been to the park for Kiawannas lights. It was amazing, we went back the next day to bring my in-laws. What a view!

Excellent holiday lights- park zoo is closed for the winter but the trees and park are decorated - worth an evening drive or you can walk through and see the lights. Beautiful!!! We drove through Christmas night- wonderful display!!! Lights are on through at least January 1st- worth the detour if you are travelling through the Mankato area after the... More

We were visiting Minnesota on Thanksgiving break and we got a wonderful holiday surprise. The park was beautiful and worth the wait in line. Go and see this wonderful holiday tradition. Bring cans of food and see them before they are gone.

We did a drive thru to see the fall flowers and see how the park had changed in 40 years. There was a wedding going on in one area. Nice drive.

We had a great time here with our daughter. There are lots of animals to see and some to pet. Cows, pot belly pig, ponies, goats, sheep, etc. The flowers are absolutely gorgeous. They are a mix of perennials and annuals here at this park. There is also a beautiful Koi pond. The park has a farm themed playground for... More
