Plumpton Park Zoo
For a most unique experience, head to Plumpton Park Zoo! This little-known "roadside zoo" is less expensive than most municipal zoos and so much more intimate. You can actually get next to many of the jungle and woodland wild animals!
If it could be said that the zoo has a mascot, it would be celebrity-popular Jimmie the giraffe, now 20 years old.
- Things to Do with Kids: "Special birthday party coming up? You can arrange for a private tour of the zoo with a private feeding of Jimmie the giraffe!"
- Best for Things to Do with Kids Because: The smaller size and admission fees make it popular with grandparents, while the ability to get closer to animals makes it great for selfies!
