Local Spotlight


Once Upon A Farm, Cat Country, Primate Canyon, Dragon’s Lair, Animals of the Night, Tropical Bird House, Herpetarium, Aquarium, African Veldt, Zambezi River Hippo Camp, China, Northwest Passage, and Teton Trek are some of the zoo’s modern exhibits that resemble the animals’ natural habitats. A two-mile walk is required to see all of the exhibits (3.2 km). For a nominal daily cost, trams give tourists guided tours of exhibitions; the trams are also useful for transporting people between displays.

A carousel, a riding area, a miniature train with a panoramic view of the Once Upon A Farm exhibit, and various theme-oriented gift stores and cafes are among the zoo’s other attractions; many of these amenities are seasonal. Next to the Cat House Cafe is a children’s playground, and there are various family picnic spaces set among large trees. The zoo contains an ice skating rink that is open periodically; the tented rink has a skating space of 5,400 square feet. From March to October 2012, camel rides and giraffe feeding are available for a charge. The zoo is separated into three zones, each with 19 different exhibits to see.
