Blank Park Zoo

Blank Park Zoo educates the public about the wonders of the wild by re-creating far-flung habitats and ecosystems that house more than 1,000 animals and 104 different species ranging from Siberian tigers to hissing cockroaches. Zookeepers lead chats about animals and offer conservation tips, while exhibits include hands-on feedings that allow humans to go face-to-face or nose-to-beak with hungry giraffes and parakeets. Recent new arrivals welcome curious kids to commiserate with the growing pains and early bedtimes of young wallabies, camels, and seal pups, setting a foundation for learning that may be continued in classes designed for those aged 6 months to 5 years.

In addition to raising awareness about the environment, Blank Park Zoo contributes to conservation efforts to preserve the future of native animals and their natural homes. The zoo participates in seven endangered-species breeding programs and donates a portion of admissions proceeds to several different wildlife initiatives.

    “At this time of the year the concession is closed so bring your own snacks. This is a perfect time to explore this zoo. It is intimate and not crowded but the exhibits are first class. I recommend a visit to this zoo with children of all ages. I took 2 of mine: 3 and 18 and they both loved it! Something for everyone!”

  • “I took my nieces who ate 7 and 9. We all had an amazing time. The staff was wonderful!”
