Beacon Hill Park’s Children’s Farm

Beacon Hill Park is an easy 15 minute walk from the Empress. Along with great playgrounds for both big and small children, a duck pond and beautiful walking trails, the park is also home to Beacon Hill Children’s Farm. The farm which features goats, llamas, peacocks and more has been in operation since 1985 and operates with a goal of encouraging children’s compassion for animals.

Not to be missed is the famous “running of the goats” at 10:10am and 4:10pm when the gate is opened and the jubilant little goats make an (often hilarious) run for it. Bring your kids to see these kids from early March to early October.
