    We went there twice. Great Tours given by professionals. Would highly recommend visiting here and seeing their wonderful Gypsy Vanner Breed Horses. Price has gone up a lot since we were there.

    My wife and I enjoy visiting parks and gardens when we travel and this one is a perfect stop. Poured rain on our way here but stopped just before arriving, had a great walk and enjoyed it very much

    Fun springs to kayak for a quick kayak trip. It was raining the day we did our two hour trip, but that didn't stop us. We kayaked and my daughter did the SUP. We saw tons of fish, and an alligator and its babies. We took a the quickest loop due to the weather, and were done in about an hour. If it hadn't been raining, we probably would've taken more time and explored more.

    My 10-year-old daughter and I had a wonderful time on our tour with owner Karen. We saw beautiful, friendly horses at each of the locations. Karen was very informative about different business owners, breeds of horses, the local real estate business, and individual horses.

    The trail is beautiful. We rode our e-bikes for miles and miles it was a great experience, and the scenery is breathtaking.

    Check out the square after a Saturday morning visit to the nearby Farmers Market. There is a nice variety of restaurants to stop and enjoy lunch at.

    Glass bottom boat was every bit as enjoyable as it was 50 years ago. The park is pristine. Would have like to do the longer tour and paddle board but next time for sure.

    Nice art Exhibits. Recommend. Extra programs here now and then. Close to Silver Springs. Reasonable Cost.

    So much to see, do and photograph after the cattle drive from downtown Ocala on 2-12-22. The cattle drive ended in Tuscawilla Park but the festivities continued.
    Farm animals to see and pet, food trucks, live entertainment, activities and the usual, but appreciated, feathered friends to take photos of

    My husband and I visited this phenomenal restaurant. The service is impeccable! The wine was wonderful! I cannot say how delicious the food was! After 11 years in Florida, this was the best meal that we have had by far

    Very fair prices to see so many animals. I’m basing my review strictly on animals, bumper boats, & farm generally overall (didn’t do the train ride, pony/camel ride, or water slide that they offer - wish pony/camel ride was available, but it wasn’t, understandably due to Covid pandemic, so we definitely understood). The place was much bigger than I expected, & had so many animals (including the biggest cow I think I’ve ever seen or been up close to). According to other reviews, I was skeptical about going, or what we might see - but I’m glad we chose to go, my kids really enjoyed themselves seeing all the animals, more than we expected to see, & all the staff were VERY nice & respectful. My kids absolutely loved all the animals & they had a great time getting to feed & pet so many (all were very entertaining). The large bag of feed we bought for $4.50 lasted pretty much through the entire visit between the 3 of us. Lowered my rating 1 star mainly because the bumper boats, which cost $4/each for 2 kids. The bumper boats are in a very LARGE (shallow) blowup pool, which could’ve been cleaner (not sure if it’s chlorinated, but should be especially during a pandemic, I debated on letting my kids still do it when I saw it - it wasn’t green at all, but just could’ve been cleaner, maybe caused from rain the day before). All the boats were filled with rain water since it rained the day before, so we had to wait for water to be cleaned out before kids could get in (I think that should be done before guests arrive), they were kind & did a good job getting it out when we asked. The boat my son got in only went in circles no matter what he did to control it (it worked out though, especially once my daughter got her boat & bumped him a few times); the 1st boat my daughter initially got in didn’t work at all, they tried the next & it didn’t work, then the boat she did finally get played ear PIERCING music (which plays as part of the boat timer), it was so loud she cut her ride short because of it. So I don’t recommend bumper boats. But for the price, staff, farm in general & experience overall, 4 stars is very fair - my kids would want to go again.

    This was our first trip to this venue, it will not be the last. The new lobby had just opened up and it is beautiful. The venue is beautiful inside and out. We sat front row in the balcony to see Classic Albums Live do a note for note performance of the Let It Be album followed by some of the Beatles favorite classic songs. The seats were comfortable, front row in the balcony gave me lots of leg room. The bathrooms were clean, the parking is ample, the acoustics are fantastic. What a gem of a venue!

    After missing Rainbow Springs Covid19 cutoff, we scrambled to find another area Spring for our group of 12. Juniper Springs was a nice find, cool water temps of 72 degrees was refreshing. Hiking the trails was an adventure. Park was clean, lots of picnic areas too!
