One of Northern Illinois' most popular farms, Lockwood Park in Rockford, is ready to celebrate "Fall On the Farm" with your family this October!

Get Ready for 'Fall On The Farm'

I am of the opinion that everyone gets a little bit "country" each year when Fall rolls around. We all rush to pumpkin patches and apple orchards to scoop up all kinds of fresh-off-the-farm goodies, and we love running around cornfields and hanging out with cute barnyard animals. If you're looking for another great place in the Rockford area to get a taste of farm fun, look no further than Lockwood Park on Safford Road in Rockford!

What Can You Do At Fall On the Farm?

Fall On The Farm at Lockwood Park is always one of my kids' favorite things to do each Fall, primarily because of the ponies, but the fun certainly doesn't stop there! Fall On The Farm features;

  • A corn maze
  • Fall photo ops and activities
  • Pony Rides
  • Pumpkin Painting
  • Wagon Rides
  • Pick Your Own Pumpkins
  • Petting Zoo
  • S'mores and much more!

Here's another glimpse of the fun in store for your family that 815 Outside shared a few years ago...

Fall On The Farm at Lockwood Park will take place every Saturday in October from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting October 8, 2022 (through October 29). It is free to get in with some paid activities.

When you arrive at Lockwood, I highly suggest your purchase the "Fall On The Farm Experience Package" which includes a wagon ride, pumpkin painting, petting zoo  (and feed), plus pick your own pumpkin for $16 a person. It's a great way to get more bang for your buck, and to ensure everyone has a full day of fun at Lockwood Park!
