Primrose Farm is a revived 1930s working farm located in St. Charles, west of Randall Road, and owned by the St. Charles Park District. The farm grounds have picnic pavilions, more than 100 acres of agricultural open space, a tire wing, lots of farm animals, community garden plots that can be rented and “farm discovery trails.” There is a small “summer kitchen” building separate from the farmhouse that you can go inside, but otherwise, you’ll be outdoors. Grounds are open dawn to dusk, weather permitting.
