It's great and many thanks to the ones who work here
Sep 2021
I'm not sure if the employees who work there ever read these reviews but I just want to say that you are awesome. The kids that were in our group LOVED every ride and activity. Everyone had his/her favorite. I'm sure that working there can be tiring and/or monotonous (leading the ponies around and around). Please know that you have made a lot of children happier than you can ever imagine. Can't thank you enough!

Lovely place for a wedding!
Aug 2021
As you can see from the pics there's lots to do, but we stayed in barn for visiting & snacks, then on to gazebo. Groom had hired beautiful group of 4-5 musicians playing violins & soft music. Bridal party came out of small building down a path, looking lovely as flower girls spread petals, sigh.
We were covered & comfy, great views, beautiful service.
So sorry we missed the train ride before the service, looked verrry interesting.

Such a fun place for the grandkids. Very clean and plenty for young kids to do! We love that everything (except animal food) is included.

Great for little kids
May 2021 • Family
Went with kids ages 6-10. Might be a bit boring for kids older than that, but mine loved it. There was plenty to do, we stayed almost 4 hours. My 6 year old son is already asking to go back. It was not crowded, I think they limited the number of people due to COVID. I love that the admission price covers everything ( except concessions and animal food if you want to feed them). Lots of picnic tables, and the park is a pretty setting, lots of nice landscaping/flowers.

Family Fun without much commercialism
Jun 2019
Blackberry Farms offers a great place for kids to run around and explore without bumping into a gift shop or souvenir stand every 5 minutes. The attractions are old fashioned yet still fun. Paddle boats are in a large pond area and only recommended if you want a good workout. The concession stand is basic and provides the usual suspects eating wise (hotdogs, hamburgers, french fries, etc.). Live barnyard animals are around the farm area in pens. Overall, a nice place to spend a warm afternoon.

Very entertaining for children
Dec 2019
I've been twice now with my nephews and both times have very much enjoyed the train rides. We went this season to the Christmas event and enjoyed the lighted-train ride, the Santa, the hot chocolate and the crafts in the carriage house. It's a great way to spend a couple of hours with little ones!

Great fun for small children
Jun 2019
If you have younger children take them to the Blackberry Farm where they can ride ponies, a carousel, paddle boats & even a fun little train. It is a very inexpensive experience. Walk down a recreated downtown area of old Aurora. Children and adults will enjoy looking into windows to see an old-fashioned drug store, barber shop, general store & many others. There's a food stand & picnic area. When we were there we visited a blacksmith where we watched a nail being made & learned a great deal of what happened in an old style blacksmith shop. The kids really enjoyed the play area where they could even experience a zip line. There's a farm where you can see pigs, chickens, goats, etc. You can go inside a large building where they have many old vehicles on display. Just a good, inexpensive, fun time can be had by kids & adults alike. We even had friends who rented out the entire farm for their wedding reception. I

This place is pretty nice for the amount they charge to get in. I think my children would have enjoyed it. I was looking forward to the paddle boating but the wait to get in them is pretty long. When you think of the amount of time you can ride on them once it's your turn it's kind of a waste. The train is super cute. We truly enjoyed talking with the black Smith. Early streets museum was really neat. I would have enjoyed the hatchery area but it's just wasn't the right time of year for that. The discovery barn could have been a little better. Over all good place for a family to go on a budget.
