The Zoo in Forest Park and Education Center

Visiting The Zoo in Forest Park and Education Center is a lot like stepping into a nature documentary. Guests can take a self-guided journey to meet more than 200 creatures from across the world. They may stop by the habitats of the Ring-tailed lemur, the western bobcat, and the spotted leopard. Along the way, guests might learn a lot: for instance, that the Bennett's wallaby carries its young in a pouch, and that the critically-endangered cotton-top tamarin has lost more than 75% of its native habitat.

The Zoo in Forest Park is not operated by the City of Springfield. The Zoo is an independent 501c3 non-profit organization. The Zoo is not responsible for any Forest Park conditions including parking and bathrooms.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful small zoo. My granddaughter is autistic and 9 and enjoyed the animals immensely and the fact that you could close to them without the big crowds of the larger zoos we have been to. The fact posts were fun as well. A jewel in Springfield that this Connecticut resident wasn't aware of.
