Where are we going today?

This 23.5 acre urban zoo has the distinguished honor of being the third oldest zoo in the United States (est. 1875), and it houses some of the world's most exotic, endangered, and even local wildlife. At the Zoo, animals move freely in suitably large and modest enclosures with trees, streams, pools, and other natural-like features. They house a wide variety of animals representing all corners of the earth and have even been known to occasionally invite a traveling koala or white alligator.
