This park is a fantastic place to see wildlife up close in person in their natural habitat. The park is a combination of a zoo and an animal sanctuary. There are exhibits that can be viewed by foot, such as American Bald Eagles, wolves, bears and countless others, many of which were injured and are not capable of surviving back out in the wild. There is also an open air tram that takes you on a wonderful tour of the hundreds of acres of wildlife that inhabit this park. There are herds of deer, antelope and buffalo. You will also see other local favorites such as raccoons, pheasants, moose, elk and mountain goats. Many of the animals are so used to the trolley that they actually walk along side it or in front of it, often causing the trolley to come to a stop until they pass. The driver points out animals and shares interesting information regarding the wildlife and their natural behaviors, diet and unique traits. This is a highly educational experience for all and is great for kids of all ages. There is a hands on area where different pelts and hooves can be viewed and touched along with other things like local reptiles and other educational interactive activities. There is of course a gift shop with educational gifts and others and also several areas where snacks can be purchased and eaten. It is the perfect day trip for a family or for anyone just wanting to experience nature in an up close and safe environment. I highly recommend it.
