What is there to do?

We just LOVE animals, and so do everyone at Wilderness Walk Zoo and Recreation Park in Wisconsin!

This charming 35 acre animal farm and recreation center has a host of animals, both wild and farm, as well as a picnic area, playground and walks! 

A WILD and nature filled day out just 3 miles south of Hayward!

The animals are a huge highlight for those who visit. There are adorable goats and lambs, exotic Gray Timberwolves, and even Sheba the stunning tiger!

If those kids want a real hands-on experience, did you know they can even have a go at feeding the deer too?

A trip to the Wilderness Walk Zoo is a great way for kids to learn all about the animals too, AND they can even play with baby animals too! How cute!

For those active families, why not take some time and stroll through the woods? You can even bring your own picnic and enjoy some lunch surrounded by trees!

Did you know that this fun Wisconsin zoo has MORE than just animals? Kids can take on the challenging maze, or they can tour the mystery house. What do you think is so mysterious about it? There is only one way to find out!

Make sure you bring your camera, because if you head to the panning for gold and find something magical, you'll want a memento too!

Plenty of kids fun in Wisconsin, so what are you waiting for? Grab that sense of adventure and let's go!
