Though small by comparison with other farm animal facilities, it was well kept, clean, and really designed for children. I loved it. From the peacocks to the pot bellied pig, the cow, cockatiels chickens etc. Free, although donations are accepted, a pleasant 1-2 hour stroll.

Family park. Park has play ground for the kids, an elaborate system of climbing, houses, and elements for all kid ages. Park also includes a zoo with mostly domestic animals. Kids can bring vegetables to feed the animals. All activities are free.
