A few weekends ago, my whole family decided to get together at Suson Park. None of us had been before, but we had heard great things about it. Suson Park is located in South County and has all the amenities of a standard park, plus some really fun extras.
Suson Park happens to be the home of a working animal farm. The really fun thing is that you can walk through the farm to see the animals and pet them at your own risk. They even have ‘Farm Days’ during the summer with farm themed events and face painting. If you are still on the fence about the park – Home.com rated it as one of the 10 best parks in the country. Take that out to pasture…
We decided to bring a picnic lunch and found a table next to the lake to eat. As it turns out, some other little fellows thought a picnic sounded like a great idea too.
Once the kids had choked down enough food to satisfy us, we let them feed the rest of our bread to the ducks. We had a park in the town I grew up in that had ducks. I have tons of memories of feeding those ducks. It’s crazy to watch your kids do things that you fondly remember doing as a child.
My only complaint for the park is that it’s a bit of a drive for us (about 45 minutes from St. Charles). Not a deal breaker, by any means. We’ll definitely be back!
