With an assortment of new residents this summer including very entertaining penguins and a new elephant baby, Burnett Park Zoo is a great place to pass a summer day! Big enough to spend a few hours but not so big that it's overwhelming for children, this zoo seems to be just the right size with just the right variety of animals! There are elephants to see and pet, prized tigers, monkeys, a bird house, an aquarium (with an alligator, Nemo and Dory living there--but not together) among others, a number of choices for different animal tastes! A reciprocal member of the American Zoological Association, membership has many benefits, but even a day's visit is reasonably priced. Parking is free and plentiful!
