What is there to do?

GarLyn Zoological Park is located at the very top of Lake Michigan in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and is home to native and exotic animals from all over the world!

Here, kids can see these amazing animals up close in a beautiful pine forest setting, complete with natural cedar mulched trails.. 

You might want to meet the wallabies from Australia, or the Sika deer from Asia. Over to Africa where you can come face to face with the Sulcata Tortoise, and even learn about species you may not have heard of before such as the Patagonian Cavy from South America!

Also at GarLyn Zoological Park are those favorites including the Cougar, River Otter, Black Bear, Bobcat and more from North America. 

For some special interactions, grain and apples are available to hand feed many of the animals. How cool is that?

This popular seasonal Michigan zoo offers a child friendly atmosphere and people friendly animals. Kids can enjoy the natural wooded appeal of the surrounding nature, and enjoy educational experiences too. 

So why not enjoy a family day out in Michigan at GarLyn Zoological Park, where it's all about meeting and learning about some of the coolest and unique creatures on the planet!
