Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead

Make memories at the Farm.

If your group is looking for an outdoor learning adventure while in the Kansas City area you should consider a stop at the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead, the learning farm that takes you back to the days of frontier farm living and westward expansion.

This farm is located in Overland Park, Kansas, and first opened in 1978. It is named after local Deanna Sue Rose, an Overland Park officer killed in the line of duty.

This farmstead holds farm animals, birds of prey, show gardens, butterfly gardens, nature trails, and several educational building replicas. Your group will learn about the over 250 animals and birds on site, the growing flowers and vegetables, experience a Kanza Indian encampment, and even be able to take a stroll down the main street to the fishing pond.  Here is a more complete list of things you can see and experience at the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead:

  • Kanza Native Indian Encampment
  • 1-Room Schoolhouse Replica
  • Goat Bottle Feeding
  • Pony Rides
  • Dairy Barn
  • Ben's Bank
  • Pedal tractors
  • Cinemoo Movie Theatre
  • John's Blacksmith Shop
  • Mining Tour
  • Much More

While here your group can choose to take a Guided Farm Tour or Kansas School History Tour (1st-5th graders), or just explore the farm on your own! If you work up an appetite head to any of the 4 areas on site that sell food and concessions, including Alex and Emily's Ice Cream Parlor, the Dairy Barn, Farmhouse, or Vic's General Store.

Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead is the perfect place to learn, grow, and have fun.
