Reconnect with Wildlife

Visit Over 20 Species of Animals Wildly Up Close

On a tour of our park, you’ll walk the three-quarter-mile path with an experienced tour guide and learn about each of our animals—and each species’ ecological importance. Every visit is a conversation! Reservations required for certain tours and events.

Jabari LionThe Animal Park at the Conservators Center is open Saturday and Sunday each week for Public Tours, Private Tours, and seasonal events! We also have Group Tours for social groups, college clubs, and scout troops during the week, as well as weekday Wild Field Trips for school programs. No matter what you’re looking for—be it a Birthday Party or a Photo Safari—the Animal Park is the perfect, wild retreat where you can explore and learn about the magnificent animals in our care. Reservations are required unless otherwise specified.

Ticket prices start at $16 for Adventures and $26 for Twilights.
