Collingwood Children's Farm- a little oasis for all ages

This pretty place brings us an overflow of fond memories. Children (and adults) giggle delightfully patting those cuddly soft guinea pigs. The grown-ups wish they were kids just for a day, so that we could join the fun ride with Joe the pony.


Being just 4km away from the city with easy access by public transportations makes the journey worthwhile and painless. Lunch is never a headache, as we are always spoilt by a selection of great choices at the adjacent Abbotsford Convent. The visits are constantly interspersed with sweet little surprises such as the rare moment when the peacock fanned out its gorgeous plumage, the sudden bleating of goats demanding for more food, and the cow milking opportunity that occurs just twice a day.


It's also educational and informative, with friendly staff standing-by to provide interesting facts about the lovely animals which we have so much fun interacting with. We learned about the two different breeds of sheep, but still struggle to distinguish the five different breeds of chicken. We know the few Berkshire pigs by their individual names, and was overjoyed when we learned the good news of pregnancy of our dear lady pig.
