It's an animal-tastic family day out in Utah with Willow Park Zoo, where kids can come face to face with their favorite creatures and enjoy unforgettable experiences! The zoo is a place where kids can not only learn about the animals and their habitats, but enjoy hands-on fun too. We love the sound of that!
Willow Park Zoo isn't one of the biggest zoos in the USA, but it's charming, and offers some great additional events that are perfect for the whole family. The Wildlife Learning Center holds weekly storytime sessions, where kids can hear stories as well as see an animal up close, and even enjoy some crafts!
Parents, there is something for you too with parents night outs where you can enjoy time with each others and those kiddies over 3 years can enjoy dinner, a movie, and even some games!
There are great seasonal activities too, such as getting your photograph taken with a reindeer. How fun is that!
But of course, Willow Park Zoo is about the animals first and foremost, so let's explore them! Kids can see those familiar creatures such as coyotes, bobcats, and the North American Elk, right down to the smallest of hedgehogs and kinkajous!
There are creepy crawlies for those kids who love seeing skinks, iguanas, snakes and turtles, and even grand birds of prey - try and spot the bald eagle! The zoo even has an impressive 5 species of goose, and 8 species of pheasants! Who knew there were that many!
So let's go and enjoy a family day out in Utah where you arrive with just your family, but leave with quite a few more friends!
