We've come a long way since February 27, 2019, when we were forced to close the Barnyard to the public due to the threat of a very contagious bird disease called Virulent Newcastle's Disease. This mandatory quarantine affected all facilities that displayed birds to the public in L.A. County (and surrounding counties). Our birds were fine and healthy — the quarantine was designed to keep them protected.
From that quarantine, we rolled right into a Barnyard closure because of Covid-19 and the inability to socially distance groups of people in the aisle ways of the Barnyard.
And, finally, we had a rabbit quarantine that affected us as of March 2021, which will ended in late July 2021. RHD (Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease) is a very serious illness that only affects rabbits and hares (in both captivity and the wild).
So… after 2½ years of our Barnyard being closed to the public, we were VERY EXCITED to be open again, and look forward to your visit!
When you visit, don't forget to visit our bison herd, which are located in the 22+ acre enclosure to the west of the Barnyard (just off La Loma Road).
The Barnyard will be open from 9am until 2pm, on all days the park is open (Note: Park is closed Mondays).
Hours/Availability to visit Barnyard are subject to change without notice, due to unforeseen circumstances.
