Situated at the top of a hill, Randall Oaks Zoo offers a variety of kid-friendly farm animals for viewing, petting, and feeding. A stroll through the barn gives visitors an opportunity to meet alpacas, goats, and a few of our other animal friends. Some highlights of the zoo include cows, mini horses, sheep, goats, emus, alpacas, reptiles, deer, rabbits, chickens, pigs, fox, and birds, including Red-tailed Hawks, peacocks, and Great Horned Owls just to name a few. Come and meet all our four-legged, furry, and feathered friends!
