At first glance, this spot looks like a simple neighborhood park. However, it's the furry and feathery neighbors, plus the relatively natural and accessible creek that makes this park special. Your first hint will be the image of a donkey on the park sign. Two donkeys also provide inspiration for the rockers. Sometimes you'll see a donkey pair grazing in the large grassy field on weekend mornings. If they're not around, just take walk down the trail (formerly a railroad right of way) and visit them in their corral just on the other side of the creek. Also adjacent to the playground, on the other side of the trail are chickens and a goat. If you're driving to the park on a weekend, be sure to watch for hand-painted yellow railroad crossing signs that direct you to a Barron Park home which has a very elaborate model rail line and rail yard in front and back of the house. The owner loves sharing his knowledge of trains and of course donations are greatly appreciated.
