Bring your family out for a nature walk on the Zoo’s Linear Trail! If your family has never visited the Zoo’s Linear Trail this is the perfect family morning or evening stroll to get out and see what you might discover! The 10-foot wide boardwalk forged from recycled-plastic planks winds through the wetlands and oak hammocks. The trail is located at the end of the road, just past the Zoo’s main parking lots and is open during regular Zoo hours.
In May 2017, we opened the Exceptional Nature Space, a behind-the-scenes natural play area with an authentic outdoor experience. The area is a modified natural habitat that is both safe and stimulating. It is designed to be flexible to meet the unique needs of children with varying exceptionalities. Within this carefully defined space, kids are free to explore an authentic Florida habitat, engage in open-ended nature play, experiment, socialize with other children and learn by doing. Amenities may include loose parts for building materials, mud paint, and a mud kitchen. Visit our Exceptional Nature Space page to learn more.
