Daily Hours and Fees

Bring your kids, grandchildren and family to this 1900s turn-of-the-century farm. The Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead is open daily from April 1 - Oct. 31.

Designed to depict a family farm, the Farmstead has nearly 200 animals and birds of prey, vegetable and flower gardens, a one-room country schoolhouse, an old-time fishing pond, pony rides and more. Deanna Rose brings the charm of the farm to children living in the city. Children treasure such memories as bottle feeding baby goats, milking a cow and taking a horse drawn wagon ride through the woods. 2015 was the Farmstead's biggest year yet - it hosted more than 477,000 visitors from nearly every U.S. state and 17 countries.

The 12-acre "Children's Farmstead" opened in 1978 and was re-named in 1985 to honor Deanna Rose, the first Overland Park police officer killed in the line of duty.
