The Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead is a family attraction in Overland Park, Kansas.[1] The facility shows farm animals, birds of prey, show gardens, butterfly gardens, a nature trail, a Kanza Native American display, and a full-scale country schoolhouse. The facility also provides playgrounds, a fishing pond, horse-drawn wagon rides, and pony rides.[2]

The facility began as a petting zoo in 1978 and was renamed in 1985 to honor Deanna Rose, an Overland Park police officer.[3] Rose was the first Overland Park police officer killed in the line of duty.[4]

In 2014, the site began hosting an elaborate Christmas light display around the Christmas Holiday Season.[5]a
