Farm life in the 1880s comes alive at Carriage Hill MetroPark. Visitor Center exhibits start the journey back in time while demonstrations, reconstructed and historical buildings, and even period farm animals paint the picture. There are also acres of natural beauty to enjoy and a horseback riding center.

Would be very fun with kids... Great exhibits in visitors center as well. They have horse trails and walking trails. Some Trails you can take dogs on, some you can't. A fun stop if you're in the area.

A beautiful park with plenty "nature" to see, but the best part is the 1800's living history farm there - you get to see how they farmed way back when! Go check it out - totally fun and interesting!
