Your kids will like the chance to get close to--and frequently pet--a variety of farm animals. There's also a nice display of crop plants, and a small natural garden feature. And all to benefit a charity that works with developmentally disabled kids.

I would like to know this as well though I suspect you are best going to fountain Bridge to park and walking from there.
