Be prepared to see lots of peacocks and one pure white one. The guides are very helpful and friendly. Also they have special tours for children as well. Very inexpensive to become a member .

Went there to see as a possible wedding venue spot and it wasn't what we expected. There were peacocks everywhere, which was beautiful, could walk through the property, but didn't really get a lot out of the visit. I Think maybe we should have looked...More

So neat that this area is hidden right amidst a nice neighborhood. You would almost never know it was there unless someone told you. Super neat to walk around and look at the many peacocks that call this place home.

They would like the nature walk around the grounds and may like some of the "old buildings/ranch". Not a lot of things for kids such as rides. There are free range peacocks that some kids get a real kick out of.
