Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to pre-purchase my tickets or can I just show up?


Barn Hill Preserve is not open for general admission. To visit the park you must pre-purchase tickets to an activity online.




Can I pet a sloth during the Encounter Tour?


During our encounter tours you will be able to interact with two-toed sloths , but guests are not allowed to touch our sloths. Petting and touching is unconcomfortable for our sloths, so we do not allow it.




What is the terrain of the park like?


The park is located outside and parts of the walking tour are on concrete, grass, and gravel. It is recommened that comfortable walking shoes are worn during your visit.
