The Forestry Farm and Zoo is a wonderful place for children and families. Well maintained, beautiful grounds, great playgrounds, the Forestry Farm has it all. At Christmas time, a beautiful light display.
This zoo is small ; but at $12.50 adult admission, a great deal. Went on a sunny morning and nice to see the animals enjoying the sun as well. Some of the area is off limits due to heavy construction , but most animals still...More
We were sure happy to see children’s push wagons for rent. this grandma and grandpa forget the stroller. It worked great for a 18 mth old and 4 year old. You have to be able to walk the distances. The animals were great to see....More
This zoo has a lot of animals to view. I arrived there around 9:30am and I was able to see most everything. The animals have lots of space, but no matter where they are within their enclosure you are still able to see them.
Many of the animal exhibits were empty. The grass eating animals did not look healthy, the plains bison had multiple open sores on its legs.
The buckeye cafe wasn't very appetizing.
The walk around for the nature was nice, but the walkways are difficult terrain...More
It was a nice warm day out, but not much wildlife to see. Not sure where the animals were? We saw the Bears and the bald eagles. You shouldn't have to pay for parking, a child buggy, and entrance into the park. That's a money...More
We went here just to see the Meerkats they were the newest attraction of the zoo because we’ve been there before we thought we’ll check it out. It was just a small building with glass and i wasn’t expecting they were that small and cute....More
It’s a great place to take the kids and give them the experience of seeing animals in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The park part of it is also really nice for family picnics. Execellent place to visit with the kids!
We have been to the Forestry Farm on numerous occasions and were very pleased. This recent visit was a disappointment. Many of the exhibit spaces were empty. Which was puzzling. We found out near the end of our visit that some of the animals had...More
I go several times a year. Georgia is my favorite, such a funny little porcupine. The bears are always entertaining as well. Price is right. There are parks in and around the zoo that are fun for the little ones to burn off some energy.
As far as I know, most animals are rescues and even though they have been rehabilitated, cannot be returned to the wild due to their dependence on us for care and feeding. This is the case for the eagles and grizzly bears... More
As far as I know, most animals are rescues and even though they have been rehabilitated, cannot be returned to the wild due to their dependence on us for care and feeding. This is the case for the eagles and grizzly bears ( one of which has OCD). Any offspring born at The Forestry Farm Park would have to continue living there since their parents wouldn't know how to care for them in their natural habitat. We do on occasion borrow animals for a term such as the white tigers, kangaroos and red raccoons. Recently, the peacocks have been given to another zoo because of our climate - we would have to build a separate structure for them to properly care for them during the winter (the existing structure is too old). While going through The Park, it's good to read the signs at each animal pen as explanations are usually given about that particular animal.
