There are guinea pigs the kids can pet, lots of animals to see, a goat yard where they can pet and brush the goats, a playground with a unique slide with a clear panel inside so they can see river otters swimming in their zoo enclosure while sliding down the slide. There is also a sprayground to cool off in. Throughout the Children's Zoo there are numerous opportunities for imaginative play including playing veterinarian and pretending to work on a farm.
