Bring your grandparents to the farm for a special family outing. There will be accessible animal encounters either in the small animal barn, museum, or field so that all who attend can get have a meet and greet with the Farrel-McWhirter Park farm animals.

There will also be an opportunity for our farm staff to take a family photo of you with a farm animal. Join us for a fun multi-generational family outing.

Turf Replacement at Grass Lawn

Today, work begins to replace the artificial turf on Multi-Use Field 2 with a safer and more environmentally friendly option. In addition, cricket lines will be added to the new surface, which were a need identified through research and engagement with field users, other stakeholders, and recreation staff. Please be aware, during installation the parking lot on 148th Avenue NE will be heavily impacted as well as the pedestrian path from that lot to Multi-Use Field 2 and the field itself. Construction is expected to be completed this fall.
