Farm Animal Corral

Read our Safety Policy here!

Our Farm Animal Corral offers children and adults a safe, clean, fun opportunity for learning about real barnyard animals. The Farm Animal Corral is designed with double fencing to let children view and even feed live farm animals safely!

The Corral showcases an assortment of all the wonderful animals found on the farm, including: goats, sheep, chickens and rabbits.

Food for the animals and for the fish is available in the Country Store or in coin-operated vending machines near the Corral. (Please don't feed the animals your own bread or snacks - it's not good for them!) Don't forget to bring your camera!
