Nice place for day outing with kids. Good one for Pumpkin patch.

Review №2

It was a great experience for kids. The docents in authentic clothing will teach you with hands-on experience how to get the dry corn kernels out to make popcorn in the old-fashioned oven, how to wash clothes, how to brush wool and spin it, how to make a thick rope and how to take care of a garden, all in the old-fashioned way. The train will take you to the other side. Theres lots of picnic tables to have your lunch. This farm is just such a great sneak peek into the past in the middle of Hi-Tech living.

It is a pretty large farm with a large pumpkin patch with sorted pumpkins by size and brand. It offers a fair size maze where children have fun. It also offers rides on a truck around the farm, which is fun for any age.

Went for their annual Labor Day train fair. Easy parking, clean facilities, and lots of picnic tables with shade. Fun music. Which all equals a good time for kids or the kid in you.

Review №5

My kids always enjoy the train rides and seeing the fire trucks. The farm animals are always enjoyed as well. Great place to take kids.

Review №6

Kids can have fun on the train ride! Variety of farm animals! Even a few peacocks!

This review is actually for Ardenwood Historic Farm, which is part of the wonderful East Bay Regional Park District. We went to see monarch butterflies but humans’ collective industrial-technological “Midas touch” on this glorious globe of ours is decimating their numbers and there were none to be observed. Still, this site is a true gem for its tranquility, modest-yet-charming collection of hoofed and assorted small animals as well as fowl of various forms, meandering paths, scattered picnic areas, and lots of child-oriented scheduled activities. The peacocks are fearless. Part of the special educational opportunity provided by a space like Ardenwood is that the learning is as much about how to simply enjoy *being* in an idyllic setting as it is about more concrete informational learning. Just being at Ardenwood for its immersive pleasures could very well be its primary draw, while the other “stuff to do” is the trick to get you there. Either way, it’s definitely worth a visit.

We took our 2 year old son here for the Halloween haunted train ride and it was so much fun! Great mix of story telling, live actors and scenery. The best part was the interaction with everyone on the train. Definitely making this a yearly thing.

Review №9

Very good place for kids. Train ride is just 10 mins from ardenwood to Deer Park and the train departs every 40 mins. Schedules are mentioned in a chalk board near the station. Tickets for adults cost 6$ and kids under three is free.

Great place to spend the day with the family.

Review №12

Interesting, visitable only by train. However was small and crowded as only one of the three compartments of the train can fit in the museum.

Review №13

Want a place to go with your kids ? This is it great train ride animals to touch and see. A quiet little snack shack that servers great coffee also gardens, walking trails , a great wedding venue area too.
