John Ball Park Zoo
|Sitting on John Ball! |
This group is my three kids, my 2 nephews, my nephew's wife,
niece, and two great nephews!
While growing up not much changed at our little zoo, but in the last few years they have begun to improve some of their enclosures, expand, and add more animals.
Each time we go with the kids we take the same loop. We begin by going by the Pelican Pier, up past the American Eagles, and then on to the Living Shores Aquarium. The kids love watching the tide pool and seeing the sea creatures! Our next loop takes us on the Far Side of the World trail to Red's Hobby Farm. From there on it is just a natural loop to get around the zoo. Depending on how long you stop to look at the animals it can take you a couple hours to get through the zoo. We usually go in the morning and leave by lunch time.

We look forward to new exhibits they are planning to add in the near future and will continue to enjoy our local zoo when we want to take a little outing!
