Explore exhibits such as the free-flying exotic birds in the River Valley Aviary, or walk along a 1,400-foot boardwalk in the African loop to see cheetahs, endangered leopards, and Angolan monkeys leaping from tree to tree. The zoo also invites guests to peruse botanical and Asian bamboo gardens, which feature pools and fountains that invite tranquil reflection.

Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens

When the Jacksonville Zoo first opened in 1914, it had only one attraction––a red fawn. Today, nearly a century later, it’s home to more than 2,000 rare and exotic animals and 1,000 plant species, and welcomes an ever-changing lineup of visiting exhibits. Guests stroll along the boardwalk in a large, open environment called the Plains of East Africa, where cheetah, antelope, and warthogs roam in environs that simulate their native habitat. The African loop also includes Elephant Plaza, where elephants stir up tidal waves playing marco polo in a 275,000-gallon pool. Visitors can also pet and feed stingrays, stand eye-to-eye with a giraffe, and head to the award-winning Range of the Jaguar exhibit to roam a replica of an abandoned Mayan temple. During summer months, kids get wet at the Play Park and Splash Ground, where they can climb into a treehouse or peer through an underwater window to see penguins swimming overhead.

After guests explore the wildlife, rest and relaxation await within botanical gardens such as the Asian Bamboo garden, where patrons cross a traditional moon gate to see a tranquil waterfall, komodo dragons, and an interactive bamboo mist forest. The zoo also features a carousel, train rides, and several restaurants where humans can tap into their own wild instincts by hunting their natural prey—the sandwich.

Customer Reviews

This was our first year and we will definitely continue to make it a Family Holoday Tradition! We loved all the festive Christmas lights and music. The ambiance was perfect to be in the holiday spirit, and we could take our time walking around. The extra activities (carousel ride, roasted marshmallows, etc) were also enjoyable and fees were nominal so you don't have to break the bank like other Holiday Park Events.

It's our second year and it's so fun being out and watching all the young families. Lights are great and we saw more animals this year. We will go again next ear.
