Word on the Street

The Farm in Reseda is a small petting zoo located on Tampa Avenue just south of Roscoe Boulevard. You’ll find lots of different animals roaming the area such as ducks, goats, llamas, horses, cows, pigs, and lambs. But the big draw for children is the chance to ride a pony. The ponies vary in size, with the littlest one weighing in at only about 400 pounds… a good choice for the inexperienced young rider. The Farm is small, and is a perfect choice for an hour-long adventure in the city. The cost is reasonable: $5 for adults and children. (Senior citizens over 55 can get in for $2. And, as the sign outside says, “Old Folk” (noted as over the age of 70) are free. Pony rides are an extra $3 per ride. Although the place has a rustic feel to it, the sights and sounds of the nearby traffic never let you feel like you’ve traveled back in time to the Old West. There are no drinking fountains, nor is there any food available for purchase. (You won’t be feeding the animals either.) And the bathroom is, shall we say, rustic as well. Just be sure your tykes use the one at home before venturing out to The Farm. And, of course, it should go without saying, be sure to wear old shoes!
