McGovern Children’s Zoo: A river otter plays underwater, the sounds of flapping wings echo in a realistic bat cave, and goats bleat for attention in the Petting Zoo—kids experience all this at the John P. McGovern Children’s Zoo, where guests can also find the Bug House, home to a variety of fascinating insects.
