Forsythe Park

Forsythe Park

Featured: Forsythe Park

Located just a few blocks away from the Senate House is a wonderful
park and small zoo (free).

The zoo is more like a petting zoo, but it is great for the really
young children. They have several species of birds, a bull, coy fish,
peacocks, goats, a bull, llamas, an albino deer and several other
small animals. The zoo offers hands on activities for the little ones.
The great thing is this zoo is free. In general the zoo closes at 5:00

Fun E Farm 

The Fun-E Farm was founded by a young couple with 2 small children who were eager to find a FUNSAFE, and CLEAN place to bring their kids to play. As a local physical education teacher and mother, she thought it would be great to combine children's naturally high energy levels with some exhilirating physical activity! With today's growing obesity epidemic, they understand the importance of promoting a more active lifestyle.

The Fun-E Farm is home to a wide array of inflatable structures including bounce houses, obstacle courses, slides, interactive bubbles and toddler bounces! They provide a fun, clean, and safe environment for families to spend some quality fun time together.
