It really is all happening at this activity-based, family-oriented zoo
More than 300 animals await visitors to the Beardsley Zoo, where you can spend a couple of hours – or the whole day. Animal inhabitants feature many endangered and threatened species, including the Siberian tiger, Andean condor, ocelot, red wolf, giant anteater and golden lion tamarin. But you can also take a look at red pandas, boa constrictors, bison, bald eagles, bobcats and rheas. Special kids’ programs for everyone from tots to teens get the whole family involved, as do themed scavenger hunts and other special zoo events. Grab a bite at the Peacock Cafe or enjoy lunch al fresco in the Picnic Grove. There’s also a colorful carousel to round out your perfect day at the zoo.
