Little Discoveries Baby Barnyard is a safe, creative space designed exclusively for children under 4 years of age. We love to watch our visitors grow as they are developing skills such as sorting and matching or climbing and sliding down a giant tube slide. Parents are encouraged to play along with their children as they explore the barn and farm house, jump into the pig pen, and feed the horses carrots. Every week is a new discovery and new advancements for our littlest visitors.
