Though small by comparison with other farm animal facilities, it was well kept, clean, and really designed for children. I loved it. From the peacocks to the pot bellied pig, the cow, cockatiels chickens etc. Free, although donations are accepted, a pleasant 1-2 hour stroll.

The new playground at Forsyth park is very nice. It is all plastic instead of wood and it's easier to get up and down the different levels. They also have added more animals to the sanctuary, they have white peacocks! They are even more beautiful...More

I think they are allowed as long as On a leash and you clean up after them. Also, people friendly.
