Hemker Park & Zoo

In 1977, Mark and Joan Hemker began with a simple dream: to own a zoo. Starting with just a few waterfowl, they soon amassed a collection of animals from around the world. After Mark passed away in 2006, Joan and their four children took up his mantle, keeping his legacy alive through Hemker Park & Zoo. Today, the family-friendly park introduces visitors of all ages to global wildlife with more than 50 animal species. Residents include giant tortoises, an 8-foot boa constrictor, sleek kangaroos, and inquisitive monkeys and lemurs. There's also a Budgie Buddy House where tiny birds alight on visitors' shoulders and two New Guinea singing dogs who never, ever do autographs. Seasonal events, such as kids' zoo camps and the Close Encounters program, let visitors touch and feed certain animals under the guidance of professional educators for an even more intimate experience.

Customer Reviews

Pack a picnic lunch, set aside some time and take the whole day to just enjoy the animals and your kids enjoying them and playing on the playground and even learning about the various animals. The people were friendly, the grounds were well kept, and the animals were clean and cages clean. A great time!

Buy the 'budgee sticks' at the gift shop before you go to the budgee house! The birds love them and will land on the sticks while you/your child is holding it. We got some really great photos and the kids loved the birds!

It's a small zoo, but it is nice.
