Petting Zoo

touchy_feelyA favorite among children, the petting zoo offers a collection of happy creatures from the smallest African pygmy goats to the long-necked llamas. Although they are friendly, please be aware they are not trained animals and they may jump on you or attempt to nibble your clothes. You’ll also find the camels, alpacas and a few animal surprises here. However, not all animals in the petting zoo are accessible for petting.

Crackers to feed the animals are sold at the booth within the petting zoo.  There are also coin-operated food dispensers with other treats for the zoo creatures.  As a reminder, the USDA requests that only the animal food sold at the Park be permitted for feeding to any of our animals.  This is for the well-being of our animals to prevent any outside contaminates being given to them.

Please note: The Petting Zoo closes at 5:30 PM on weekdays and 6:30 PM Saturdays and Sundays. This is one half hour BEFORE the rest of the park closes.  Also, children under 8 years of age must be accompanied by a chaperone of at least 16 years of age.

*Time Tip: approx. 20 minutes needed to visit the petting zoo
