about Lake Metroparks Farmpark:
At the family-oriented science and cultural center devoted to agriculture, farming, and country life, kids can discover where their food comes from, and a whole lot more.
Kids can milk a cow, watch bees at work, and have close-up encounters with more than 50 breeds of farm animals. Visitors can also experience the park by traveling on wagon rides driven by horses or tractors. Engaging exhibits featuring hydroponics (The Great Tomato Works features 24-times-life-sized tomatoes!) and renewable energies (solar and wind) make trips to the award-winning park fun and educational.
Seasonal activities include ogling baby lambs (January through March), marveling at maple syrup production (Mid-February through March), watching a cider press in action and wandering the corn maze (Autumn).
Horse and dog shows, plus reenactments and even the occasional static display make this park a hit, year 'round, with all ages.
