3 Best Farm Parks For Any Family Day Trip In Illinois
Fon du Lac Farm Park - East Peoria, IL
Opened in 1981, Fon Du Lac Farm Park takes you back in time to the 1920's to feel like a real farmer's kid! Play in a big red barn, visit the petting zoo, museum, playground, and their interactive exhibits. This October, they're also having a Witches Walk on October 21st, 22nd, 28th & 29th!
Peck Farm Park - Geneva, IL
This Farm Park is a 385 acre natural retreat with 10-minute movies, a butterfly house, sensory gardens, hayrides, unique playgrounds, & a huge amphitheater with a fire pit!
Coming this October, dress up your canines and bring them to the Howl O' Ween Dog Parade at Peck Farm Park.
You never know, your furbaby might just win and you get to see a bunch of adorable doggies running around in costume!
Perry Farm Park - Bourbonnais, IL
"Perry Farm Park offers many programs for all ages throughout the beautiful lands. We recommend walking, running, rollerblading or even biking through the beautiful nature trails."
What I love about this farm park? The farmhouse, animal pens, Centennial Orchard, and the Millennium Garden.
They have field trips many months out of the year and so many kids have gone through their park. Parents, I promise there's something for you!
This is super cool for the whole family, a carriage ride.
Of course it's a seasonal attraction, but you get to tour all the trails and sightsee right from your seat! Check out more of their attractions on their website.
If you're looking for a new adventure with the family before it gets too cold out, think about visiting a farm park instead of a state park this fall! Switch it up and surprise the kiddos with some new outdoor explorations!
