Pet Tales


Beginning August 2014:
Pet Tales at the Frick
A self-guided experience for families to get moving, learn and have fun!

Starting in August, families are invited to gallop, waddle, waggle, and prance across the Frick’s “fetchingly” beautiful grounds while learning about the pets that lived at Clayton. Stop at the Visitor Center for our new Pet Tales at the Frick walking guide and enjoy an animal-themed jaunt meant for people! Go at your own pace and take yourself­—and your family—for a playful summer walk!
