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.
A new kind of natural play area designed to meet the unique needs of children with varying exceptionalities and their families.
