I always try to make it here at least once a year to walk the park and enjoy the free day. Love listening to the kids play in the playground and seeing the old farm area.

Perfect activity to do while 39 weeks pregnant! So relaxing with the beautiful colors and smells of the plethora of flora. The butterfly exhibit was well worth the extra fee! Will definitely be back for their seasonal activities!

My husband and I visited Chatfield Farms for the first time. It is very peaceful and pretty. I wanted to see the butterflies. Unfourtunately, they were inactive due to the weather being cool on the day we visited. I was mistaken in believing that they...More
