The Friends of Wagner Farm provides stewardship and fundraising support to Historic Wagner Farm to expand programming, create educational experiences and enhance the farm property.
New Farm Adventure Area is Open!
Play, explore and learn in this dynamic new addition to the Farm.
It’s a unique hybrid between a traditional playground and an interactive agricultural education exhibit.
The play equipment is farm-themed and allows kids to interact with a rural environment.
Wondering what to expect? A tractor tire sandbox, a climbable corn stalk and a kid-sized farm stand transports Historic Wagner Farm’s youngest visitors into life on the farm where they can play and explore. The gardens adjacent to the playscape are for everyone with ADA-accessible, raised garden beds, checkerboard game tables and educational signs with agriculture-related facts.

The new playscape is located just west of the Heritage Center. Visitors can follow a paved walkway from the Heritage Center to a circular hub that intersects with a path to the playscape and other areas of the farm.
The Farm currently serves over 140,000 annual visitors, including school groups and residents. All of these improvements help accommodate the increasing number of guests and provide new opportunities to learn.
