Fall in love with Lockwood Park as you experience life on the farm in the heart of a big city!

Lockwood Park Trailside Equestrian Centre and Children's Farm is home to a variety of animals including horses, goats, sheep, llama, rabbits, ducks, a donkey - and everyone’s favorite, Huckleberry and his pony friends. Explore over 146 acres of gently rolling hills, meadows, woods, natural areas, stream, 15-mile numbered trail system (hiking, biking, or horseback riding), playground, picnic areas, and much more.

Lockwood Park is an affordable and family-friendly facility that promotes positive interactions between people and animals. Farm life provides the opportunity for quality family time and the chance to be face to face with our farm friends. Our animals just want to say “hi” and show you around their home!
