There is so much summer fun at Davis Farmland
My boys were both really excited to spend the day at Davis Farmland – especially once I told them there was a splash park there. It was a hot day in July and they were happy about there being a way to cool off. We actually brought cousin Jonah, who was visiting with his dad, Uncle Keith, from San Diego with us for the day. All three of the boys had a blast exploring everything at Davis Farmland.
Cuddle with animals Davis Farmland’s Animal Showcase
Davis Farmland’s Animal Showcase is an awesome area to make memories with your kids. Inside the Animal Showcase you can pet, cuddle, and feed North America’s largest collection of endangered livestock breeds. How cool is that? If you’d like, you can ride a pony, take a Safari Hayride out to the back pastures to meet their larger animals.
There the kids can be junior farmers by helping the farmers milk a goat, collect chicken eggs, bottle feed the babies, and groom the animals. There is also a reptile ranch, which was one of the boys favorite things of the day.
Explore Imagine Acres
Located between pony rides and the covered picnic areas, Imagine-Acres focuses on your young child’s imagination through interactions with kid powered fun, nature and learning through play. There the little ones can bounce, climb, pretend, and let their inner child run wild. Kids can explore sand and water play, play in the tool shed, and climb on play structures.
While there, kids can spend time in the ALL-NEW MooTown, USA! There they can make pizza in the diner, scoop ice cream in the ice cream shoppe, be a cashier, go grocery shopping, be a veterinarian in the vet clinic, go camping in the Cow-A-Bunga Campground, play in the farmhouse and tool shed in the Okee-Dokee Corral! There is so much to do in MooTown, USA!
