Lynnwood Park Zoo is built on a 10 acre parcel and has a ½ acre pond next to the picnic area.

The zoo was established in 1990.


Our animals come from various backgrounds from private owners, to rescue situations, and even from other facilities that were downsizing or shutting down. Every animal has a story- ask a keeper if you have any questions about anyone in particular!
