 barron park donkeys in palo alto

Niner and Perry welcome you! BarronParkDonkeys.Org is the official website of the Barron Park donkeys behind Bol Park in Palo Alto, California.  We are a 501(c) non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. You can give in many ways - by making a donation through our PayPal link or make a purchase through the DONKEY STORE. Your tax deductible donation directly goes to the care and feeding of our neighborhood donkeys and we are deeply grateful for your support! 

The Barron Park Donkeys have been truly loved by generations of children and adults since 1936. As June Fleming, a previous City Manager, once pointed out, they could be considered to be the "sacred" donkeys of Palo Alto. 

Our present two donkeys are a miniature, named Perry (Pericles - born 1994)) and a standard, Miner 49er (born 1984), who answers to both Niner and Miner. 

Perry was the model for Shrek's Donkey in the movie Shrek.
