Nice place to walk but not for feeding animals like the website says. I think you they should only charge 2 or 3 dollars for parking.

This is one of our favorite day trips - the grounds are beautiful. Shade tree lined nature path, beautiful native flower plants. The Butterfly Festival is a can't miss. Watching all of the Monarch butterflies is so breathtaking.

The cost is super reasonable! Like next to nothing. While it is not spectacular; it is pleasant, welcoming, family and child friendly and certainly has enough going on that is interesting and entertaining. Consider it a little hidden jewel in Jacksonville that can be enjoyed...More

This place is amazing and unfortunately not enough people have heard about it. Great historical information about our region, nice trails to walk and farm animals. Great way to entertain and teach children and adults alike.
