Family-Friendly Daytime Activities

Weekends Sept 28 through Oct 27 -- Outdoor fall activities for kids and families in Kansas City. Our fall Family-Friendly Attractions at Paradise Park include three options to choose from: Family Friendly Daytime Hayrides & S'mores, a Petting Zoo and Pony Rides.

It's the best kind of old-fashioned harvest days fall fun for adults, kids, groups and families!

What makes ours different?

Everything about Paradise Park has a personal touch. We are family-owned and operated, and care about every detail of your experience. Our friendly staff will do everything they can to make sure you enjoy your hayride and s'mores. Our 15 acres of fun include lots of beautiful landscaping you'll enjoy on your hayride, and you'll enjoy the large crackling campfire, which we build for you in a work of art crafted by a local metal artist!

And our environment is wholesome and family friendly for our daytime hayrides! We have youngsters and their families in mind as we create these outdoor fall activities and things to do in the fall with friends.

Family-Friendly Daytime Hayrides & S'mores


The tractor-pulled hayride winds through the acreage at the back of our Park offering a leisurely ride and slowed-down pace. At the end of the ride, you'll gather 'round a nice campfire to create good-old-fashioned s'mores and play outdoor yard games. It's a perfect way to enjoy the fall season with family and friends.
