Historic Oak View County Park Reviews & Ratings
We love this park! So much history to see, gardens, farm animals, adventure backpacks, and an area for children to play. They even have some eggs and veggies set out to take a sample of. I would definitely recommend!! This is a great place for children to play, for families to fish, visit a historic farm, take a hike, travel back in time.
A beautiful park with trails, fields, and ponds that easily make you forget you're in the city. Lots of family friendly events, and picnic areas with charcoal grills make this a wonderful way to get away and relax. An educational building on site shows how farmers lived circa 1900, and details early cotton gin processing. Live chickens and goats can also be found in the park so children of all ages can enjoy some farm life. Check out their website for events and more information.
Amazing free park! The visitor's center has a fun play area with a market, books, puzzles, costumes etc. Kids can play in the barn and explore the gardens. Each building has interesting displays for all ages.
This place is pretty cool! I thought my kiddos would be bored since they're young, 3 years and 1 year, but it was the opposite. They loved running through the beautiful grounds, seeing the chickens and goats but especially the inside exhibit with play kitchen/market and dress up costumes. We'll definitely be back!
This old Plantation has been beautifully restored with factual information and photographs. Great paths for a little walk and perfect grounds to read, paint or have a picnic.
