Animals, Playground, Park
This is a gem of a park. We first ventured out to WWI Memorial Park because we were told they had animals to see, that you could also feed. They weren’t kidding. This is essentially a free miniature zoo. An entire area dedicated to pigs, goats, sheep, deer, a donkey, a peacock, horses, some other birds and I believe rabbits. You used to be allowed to bring carrot sticks to feed the animals but apparently they were a bit overfed so you can now purchase grain through a machine on the property to feed the animals.
After our visit with the animals, we ventured out to see what else was in the park. Our next stop was a beautiful butterfly garden, complete with a wishing well, waterfall, water feature and the biggest slide you’ll ever see. Our daughter got up her courage and climbed up the hill to the top of the slide and took the plunge. You’ll be happy to know she lived to tell about it and did it again and again and again and again. Luckily, there are benches for the moms while you wait for the adrenaline kick to wear off. After I pulled her away from the slide, we cooled ourselves off at the water feature (just for hands really) and headed up the hill to the Beach.
This is not a beach with water but rather a gigantic sandbox made to look like a beach. Next to the sandbox is an amazing playground for all ages. There is enough to do here to entertain your kids for an entire day really. We had to pull our daughter away for our son’s naptime but will definitely be back soon!
Other things to note:
- We saw a few birthday parties here. I believe you can rent out a picnic table and bouncy house for your child.
- Bring quarters if you want to buy grain for the animals
