We are very proud to announce that Papanack Park Zoo Inc. has recently been purchased by NEW OWNERS in 2014. Our goal is to provide animals with a comfortable, caring and safe living environment, while allowing the public an exciting, educational and fun place to visit!

We invite you to come out and spend a wonderful day with us at the park as it is currently undergoing a mini re-birth. Existing enclosures are being torn down and rebuilt, allowing for more space, comfort and enrichment for the animals. The enclosures and habitats’ which are to remain intact will undergo a face lift and have enrichment added to their living space.

We’re Always
Happy To Help!

Our friendly staff will be pleased to assist you around our facility to ensure a day filled with great zoo memories.

Visitors’ Reviews

“Need to say that this Zoo is underrated. And we will definitely will visit it again soon to support animals. I can easily give this zoo 1 star but instead will give them 5 stars for what they are doing even during this hard time.”

James Silver

“The animals were fun to watch and feed! They look well taken care of. Staff was very friendly. The paths go in all different directions, it is not one path that you follow there are many of them! A good time was had there! Good price!”

Heather Cancilla

“We were very surprised about the zoo by how amazing it is and it is a huge park. There were many kids of animals. Adult and kids will enjoy to visit this Zoo. I am shocked of the poor rating by the people who wrote the review. To be honest, this place is awesome and both kids and adults will definitely enjoy to visit this zoo. Just be prepared to bring your own snacks and water because it is a huge zoo. All the staff are friendly and professional. The only thing I would say it is expensive we paid $50 for 2 adults, a toddler and an 4 year old. Otherwise we had a great experience.”
