Horse-Drawn Bobsled Rides offered at the Homestead on Saturday and Sundays in January and February. CALL BEFORE COMING TO THE PARK -- Winter weather is a tricky thing. What you experience at your home may not be what is happening on the farm in Lowell, so call ahead before coming to the park to make certain rides will be offered.
Dolly and Molly, the beautiful Belgian horses that call Buckley home, will pull you along the snowy paths of the historic farm. The open bed wagon on runners is a chilly ride so make sure you dress accordingly and bring a blanket for your lap.
The rides are on Saturday and Sundays during the months of January and February between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The availability of rides depends on snow and temperature conditions. We need snow, not ice, for the horses – and it can't be too cold for them either. Call Buckley at 219-696-0769 and push the option for park information prior to visiting the park to check weather conditions. Rides last 20 to 25 minutes. The cost is only $2 per person. The bobsled holds eight to ten people.
