Hemker Park & Zoo - It's wild fun!

Take your family for a walk on the wild side, and experience more than 50 wildlife species from around the world in a semi-natural setting. Our Close Encounters program will get you up close and personal. Pet a penguin, feed the birds in our famous Budgie Buddy House, or get close-up with Cookie, our 8-foot boa constrictor.

As part of our mission to educate young and old about the wonders of the animal kingdom, Hemker Park & Zoo is also available to travel to schools, businesses, and homes with fun and fascinating mobile programs, including petting zoos, the Animals Around the World science and geography initiative, and reindeer sleigh rides.

With so much available, whether it’s a family walk around the park, a field trip, birthday party, or other celebration, Hemker Park & Zoo is your stop for fun.
