Take a Spin on the Animal Carousel

Whether you’re arriving at the Zoo or about to head home after a day of fun, be sure to stop by our Animal Carousel, located just outside our main gate. With alligators, giraffes, ponies and more, your little ones can choose their favorite Zoo animal to ride. And with plenty of great photo opportunities for moms, dads and teachers to make the most of, this will be a memory you’ll cherish.
