Rides & Attractions - Johansen Farms Children's ZooOur Fall Activities

Our main priority at Johansen Farms is to present fun family activities in a safe and clean environment for our children and yours. When you enter our Children’s Zoo, you will find 7 acres of kids’ attractions surrounded by a cornstalk fence line. Once inside, your children will be unable to wander off too far from Mom and Dad. Each fun-filled activity offered in the zoo is monitored by our friendly staff to ensure your child’s constant safety.

The Johansen family has offered fun activities for kids at our petting zoo for over 32 years and we do not promote anything that will frighten young children. Come and meet the friendly farm animals you can pet and feed! There are all kinds of fall family activities to enjoy—with rides!

Third generation Chicago area parents are now watching their children experience the same delight and wonderment they did when they were young. For fun things to do with kids in Chicago, we can’t be beat! Come and enjoy a family outing at the farm!

All of the above attractions are FREE and unlimited with paid admission into the zoo. All attractions are weather permitting and subject to close without notice. Sorry, no refunds. Handicap accessible.
