I am an adult and took my parents, one with mobility issues to Briarwood and it's the best time we have had together in ages. The animals are well conditioned to seeing cars and getting fed so as you drive through they are very curious....More

This is a great place to take the kids. I recommend you don't ride your car in, but take the wagon as the buffalo have been known to dent the cars. There is a good assortment of animals and a great picnic area.

We have been to other "safari" parks, so I can make comparisons. Briarwood was a good stop. The staff was nice, telling us about the animals and how to feed them before we entered the gate. He even knew that it was my daughter's birthday...More

I believe adult tickets were $17.00. Senior was $16.00. A large bucket of food was $3.00. Not sure about children. Do remember cash or checks only. It was so much fun! ENJOY!
