Critter Lane Petting Zoo

See Photo Location

Critter Lane is a 10-acre, self-guided, walk-through petting zoo with hundreds of exotic animals from all over the world. It is the perfect opportunity to get close to our critter friends and interact with them. We try to make it the most hands on experience we can while making it safe for our critters as well as our guests.

Camels, sheep, goats, pere david deer, badgers, eland antelope, scimitar oryx ,donkeys to name a few of the critters. Step into the parakeet encounter and get face to face with a budgie. There is a bouncy house and a playground area for the kids. Take a stroll on our 45-foot bridge to see the koi fish or mute swan.

Feed is available for purchase but feeding is optional for all animals. Admission is $6.00 per person and children two and younger are free.
