Set at the top of a hill, Randall Oaks Park & Barnyard Zoo is the largest of the district's parks, spanning 141 acres of open space. The park is a fine place for a company picnic, family gathering or just a day out of the house with the kids. The picnic areas include grills, playground equipment, shelters, horseshoe pits, volleyball areas and undeveloped land. The barnyard is bursting with kid-friendly farm animals. Holstein cows, regular-sized and pygmy goats, pigs and piglets and rabbits fill the barn with a symphony of mooing, oinking and bleating. Three incubators showcase the hatching process. Outside, in back of the barn, steer, sheep, lambs, a burro family, turkeys, ducks, geese, peacocks, pheasants and fancy-feathered poultry provide understated entertainment from inside their pens. Kids may pet every animal, except the barnyard fowl; foul-tempered geese, chickens and turkeys peck little fingers. Make like Old MacDonald and scatter feed to the goats, chickens, sheep and geese; the farm sells bags of corn and cracked grain for 75 cents each.
