Three new baby goats add to the fun of the farm that features pigs, donkey, horses, a hut full of birds and more in Beacon Hill Park.

The twice-daily stampedes see the animals thunder out from their overnight abode and race and jump to the play area at the iconic goat barn in the morning – and back again for the night.

Beacon Hill Children’s Farm is open daily, weather permitting, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with goat stampedes at 10:10 and 4:10.
