Fall is a special time at the Animal Park. The deer’s antlers have matured, the bears are ready to doze off for the winter and the parrots and monkeys are enjoying the last few weeks before moving into winter quarters. The beautiful fall colors and cool temps make this perfect time to have that last family outing before winter sets in. This year the Pumpkin Patch will be open from Mid-September though the end of October. As always, the pumpkin patch is free with admission to the Animal Park. Featuring this year will be over a dozen fiberglass characters from nationally known sculptor, Mark Clone. Kids will love having their picture taken with a 9′ “Frankenchicken”, or a lifesize ” Butterflynoceros”. All of our characters are child friendly, designed for fun, and not fear. On Weekends, we will also offer free hay rides (available through the week for groups only). And the Pumpkins! With thousands to choose from, we are sure you will find one that is perfect for your needs. We normally stock 12-15 varieties in every shape, size, and color. With prices between $2-$7 dollars, our prices can’t be beat. We also have a large assortment of gourds, cornstalks, mini straw bales and more for all your fall decorating needs. McCutcheon’s cider, barbecue sauces and preserves are available in our gift shop. We offer special group rates for any organized groups. Please call for details and to schedule your group.
