“turn-of-the-century family farm”
Designed to depict a turn-of-the-century family farm, the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead has almost 200 animals and birds of prey, vegetable and flower gardens, a one-room country schoolhouse, an old-time fishing pond, pony rides and more. With the Kansas family farm slowly disappearing, the 12-acre "Children's Farmstead" opened in 1978 and was re-named in 1985 to honor Deanna Rose, the first Overland Park police officer killed in the line of duty. Deanna Rose's legacy was to bring the charm of the farm to children living in the city. Children treasure such memories as bottle feeding baby goats, milking a cow and taking a horse drawn wagon ride through the woods
Price is FREE during the week, but on Fri / Sat / Sun and holidays, admission is $2 per person. Under age 2 is free.
This place is hard to beat if you are taking young children. Pet goats, ride ponies, fish in ponds, see a bald eagle, watch cow milking, etc. A lot of playground equipment as well which is usually a hit. Free Monday through Thursday and very reasonable Friday through Sunday.
This place was AWESOME! We had to travel out of our way during our road trip but it was more than amazing. We got there late enough during the day that it was free. They provide red flyer wagons for dragging your kids around and it is such a neat little place with cheap ice cream. 5 stars for sure.
