Parker Day

Welcome the Animal Park's newest resident, Parker Tiger!

Welcome Parker Tiger! Visitors to the Animal Park can see Parker during select times on upcoming weekends as he gets used to his new habitat, his pool (tigers love water!), and adoring fans.

On Saturday, October 9th, the Animal Park will host a day of Self-guided Safaris from 10am-2pm for the public to welcome Parker Tiger and visit the rest of the animals in the park.

Parker recently arrived, and is now four months old. He was born at another location, and when changing circumstances meant the facility he was originally headed to could not accept him, we were delighted they opted to donate him to the Animal Park. 

Parker is very playful, and visitors may see him practicing instinctual tiger-cub behaviors such as stalking, pouncing, and sharpening his claws on a log. He is a cat—and a young one at that—so, visitors may also observe him napping. Curious Parker is intrigued by everything he can see and hear—especially people—and he often spends his time in the shady, grassy area at the front of his habitat so he doesn’t miss anything worth learning about.

We’ll be hosting special “Tiger Talks” outside Parker’s habitat at 11am and 1pm. Don’t miss them!

A Self-guided Safari Day Event

Self-Guided Safaris Days are a great way for you and your family to enjoy the Park at your leisure. We have created fun packets for kids to use to become Animal Park Explorers! Guests can also enjoy our newly developed Nature Trails near the Visitors Services Building. And the best part? No reservations required!

Our Visitor’s Services Building serves as the hub for all the activities at the Park and is where your Self-guided Safari will begin! Check in with one of our friendly staff members before heading straight into the park to visit with our Residents at your own pace. Afterwards, enjoy our picnic space if you’d like to pack a fun picnic or take a stroll on our Nature Trails.
