Country living is just around the corner at the Suson Park animal farm display. Most breeds of farm animals are represented for urban dwellers to see and enjoy, from the draft horses that helped plow our soil to examples of the modern cattle breeds. Life on the farm never looked so good! Free admission.


Animal Farm Hours: Open daily
April - September 10:30am - 5:00pm
October - March 10:30am - 3:00pm



Lakes are stocked by the Missouri Department of Conservation. MDC regulations apply. 

*Manure will not be available until April when the barn reopens.




In 2012, Suson Park in south St. Louis County was named one of the top 10 parks in the United States by Home.com.
The online magazine for families and homemakers said, "Suson Park is a popular destination for families. Known for its working animal farm complete with horses, pigs, cows, chickens and more, Suson Park houses a large playground as well as a lake for fishing." Actually it's three lakes, and a kiddie pond, but who's complaining. The park is keeping grand company. Others on the list, issued in late summer, were Grant Park in Chicago, Central Park in New York, and Griffith Park in Los Angeles.



Park Hours: 8 a.m. to one half hour past official sunset, 
except when reservations are issued.
