What to Do Wednesday – Hart Park

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!

  1. Awesome! Thanks for the post, I’ve never been and have always wondered if it was a good place to take the kids. Thanks, we’ll be going!

  2. Hart park is the perfect place for outings with the kids! We’ve also had family photos taken there, with their various interesting buildings as backdrops. If you go first thing in the morning, sometimes there will be an animal caretaker out to tell you about each animal!
