Meet elephants, lions, kangaroos, meerkats and more. Kids can go nose to nose with entertaining prairie dogs in their interactive habitat with viewing bubbles. Visit our traditional Virginia Barnyard for an up close view of friendly goats, cows and more. Explore snakes, lizards, frogs and more in the Reptile House and be entertained by playful monkeys. Families will appreciate the beautiful gardens and open spaces that are perfect for running and playing. Don’t miss any of the perfect photo ops – including our popular rhino and tortoise statues that kids love to climb and our ‘history’ cage where you can get a picture of your family acting like monkeys! Join us on Tuesdays at 11am for ‘Zoo Tales,’ a story time for preschoolers and parents that includes some of our animal friends. Zoo Tales is included with admission; times and date may be subject to change.
