The Farrel-McWhirter Farm park is a Redmond city park that also happens to be a working farm.

Bunnies, goats, chickens, pigs, cows, horses, and ponies – All kinds of things to make 6-year-old girls squee.

The 68 acre park includes a preschool, summer camp program, orienteering course, and of course, pony rides.
