Great for small kids and also if you like the simple things in life. Nice park setting. Not many animals, but it's fun seeing your kids smiling and laughing and having fun with the animals. Nice back to nature moment.

I took my two young boys to visit the farm this summer. My son loved petting the rabbits and goats. He also liked seeing the ducks and peacock. There are only a few animals to see but great for little kids. It's free which is great for families on a budget.

I love Fritz Park Petting Farm! I love that this is offered free of charge in a city park...how cool is that! It's been around for many many years and is a tradition in our family. This is not a destination for tourists, but for us locals it's a treat!

There are not a million animals here, but the place is peaceful and free. It has a petting area, a coloring area, benches, and great volunteers. This place is perfect for small children.Thank City of Irving, and the Farmer who lends the animals.

First, this petting farm is FREE, which I love! It is very shady so even visiting in the summer it isn't terribly hot. They have restrooms on site & sinks to wash hands. We took a group of elementary aged-kiddos and they were quickly bored. This is a very small petting farm (?) & had animals such as goats, chickens,... More
