In our first go at the Logan bucket list, Tyler and I visited the Willow Park Zoo. We weren’t expecting much – it’s a small zoo, and admission is super cheap – but we were pleasantly surprised. We had a great time!
Though small, the zoo offers a lot for its low price. In addition to local wildlife, such as elk, raccoons, turtles, coyotes, bobcats, porcupines, and several types of ducks and birds, the Willow Park Zoo is also home to Capuchin monkeys, kinkajous, emus, many tropical birds, desert tortoises, yaks, and some other unique additions, like the white raccoon and the albino porcupine. We spent about an hour and a half visiting all the animals. We missed the bird feeding though, which you can sign up to participate in the front office at 12:15 and 2:30.
I loved the Willow Park Zoo. We will be returning for sure! Be sure to check out Reindeer Trek around the holidays.
