The Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead is open daily from April 1 - October 31 (Hours of Operation). Admission fee applies seven days a week. Bring your kids, grandchildren and family to this 1900s turn-of-the-century farm. Designed to depict a family farm, the Farmstead has nearly 200 animals and birds of prey, vegetable and flower gardens, a one-room country schoolhouse, an old-time fishing pond, pony rides and more. With the Kansas family farm slowly disappearing, the 12-acre "Children's Farmstead" opened in 1978 and was re-named in 1985 to honor Deanna Rose, the first Overland Park police officer killed in the line of duty. Deanna Rose's legacy was to bring the charm of the farm to children living in the city. Children treasure such memories as bottle feeding baby goats, milking a cow and taking a horse drawn wagon ride through the woods.
