You’ll come to a place in the middle of the city with a beautiful wrought iron entrance and think, how could this be so? Nestled among the hustle and bustle and the honking and fluorescent signs, this place pops up like the city of Oz. It’s a place where barriers between the animal and human world are put on hold. It’s a place where you can witness the strong bonds of family all around you. It’s a place where once you enter it, you won’t remember the concrete jungle you left behind just a minute ago. You’ll be transplanted into a fun adventure and watch your children’s imagination run as wild as the zebra watching you from across the way…
…where they can pretend to be a red panda climbing on bamboo,
or a prairie dog while shouting (inaudibly) “Can you see me!?” playing peek-a-boo.
It’s a place where they will learn that it’s not just people that care for their young. You’ll smile warmly to yourself when you hear them classify the “Mama, Dada, and Baby one.”
It’s a place that will challenge them, help them associate, and teach them foreign worlds.
They will use their bodies to climb to new heights…
…and get an Eagle’s eye view of thrilling sights.
They will remind you that birds are nice as they open the door to a live Aviary (after seeing your skeptical face) and beg you to watch them as they scamper through the grasslands pretending to play chase. You’ll leave here feeling happy and fulfilled and realize upon exit that you’ve only just begun…with 90% of the experience still to come.

It’s all happening at the zoo
I do believe it
I do believe it’s true” – Paul Simon
