Are you looking for fun things to do in and around the SCV? Grap a MOPS friend and check out our “What to Do Wednesday” posts, then pick a place and go!!
I love free stuff. I love free activities even more. Our MOPS tables have visited Hart Park a couple times now, and it’s certainly on top of my list of “free” stuff to do around here.
They have a tiny little farm-zoo, complete with crowing rooster and the biggest cow I have EVER seen. My kid loves running around and screaming the names of all the critters he recognizes. “RABBIT! ROOSTER! DONKEY! DEER!”
Yep. They have a deer too. She’s not shy, either, so make sure you go all the way to the back of the animal enclosures to get a look at her. I’ve been there before when she walked right up to the fence. You can feed the animals for a quarter using the little feed dispensers so if your kiddo’s old enough to not eat the food himself (unlike mine *ahem*), then bring some quarters, too.
After we browse the animals, there is a huge park (no playground, though) in the same lot where you can bring a picnic lunch and let your kids run around. It’s a good idea to bring balls, kites, blankets, or other outdoorsy entertainment to keep yourselves occupied.
Have fun! Have you been to Hart Park before? Let us know if you go!
