With farmyard animals, otters, meerkats, and even Bolivian squirrel monkeys, visitors are treated to great views of the abundant mammalian life that has its home here. A walk-through aviary offers new perspectives on New Zealand's avian life, while the daily feeding of the Capuchin monkeys provides an educational form of entertainment. A playground and numerous picnic tables make the zoo a comfortable space for the whole family to explore at their own pace.
