We needed a farm fix the other day so we headed up to Everett to visit the small but lovely Forest Park petting zoo.
The farm has varied menagerie of animals (ducks, chickens, pigs, bunnies, horses, sheep & alpacas) but we spent most of our time visiting with the babies goats.
Goat watering time.
Checking out “Thigh” and “Breast”. Just kidding. They had cute names like Henrietta and Penelope.
If You Go:
Forest Farm in Everett, Washington
Open June 28 - August 24 10a.m.-4p.m. daily (2014). Check website for additional details.
Occasionally they give $4 pony rides. I couldn’t find any information posted on the website. The day we went (a Tuesday), they were available from 10:30-11:30.
The park is also host to a fantastic spray park and jungle gym. Be prepared for a crowd on sunny days.
Both parking and the farm are free but donations are greatly appreciated. They have a cute little ‘donation goat’ that rambles around wearing a collection vest; the kids will have a kick sticking a few bucks into the attached piggy bank.
