The Randall Oaks Zoo’s mission is to connect our community with wildlife and nature; to create a sense of wonder, discovery, respect, and appreciation of the natural world. Come and meet all our four-legged, furry, and feathered friends up close with opportunities for brushing, petting, and feeding.
In addition to the Zoo, Randall Oaks Park has 141 acres of open space with three shelters, six picnic areas, one volleyball court, two playgrounds, and a 10-hole disc golf course and hayrides (groups only).
Zoo visits will now be on a walk-in basis.
- Pony rides are weather-dependent.
- Public restrooms are by the entrance to the Zoo, but not in the Zoo. We recommend using the restrooms before you visit.
- Our staff will continue to disinfect commonly touched areas throughout the Zoo.
