Guests can feed the giraffes and the lorikeets, touch and feed the stingrays, groom the pigmy goats, climb into a tree house in the Forest Play area in Play Park, enjoy the lush gardens, and attend scheduled keeper talks. Visit jacksonvillezoo.org for the keeper talk schedule and a list of other things to do at the Zoo.
“During this time of the year, the animals are more active and vocal which adds to the fun,” said Janet Johnson, deputy director of operations for Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. “It’s a great opportunity for parents to bring their children out to enjoy the Zoo and save money during this school holiday vacation time.”
*Discount cannot be combined with any other discount or offer, including Zoo Value Tickets and can only be used once per coupon. Coupon is required and can be found at jacksonvillezoo.org. Children ages 2 years old and under are free at the Zoo.
