Description and Activities:
Caribbean Gardens is a zoo and yet much more than a zoo. Founded in 1919 as a botanical garden, it was expanded and opened to the public in 1954 with tropical lakes and paths lined with exotic birds. Rare animals were first displayed in exhibits within the garden in 1969. Today, you will find a collection of animals from apes to zebras surrounded by a 52-acre tropical garden over eighty years old. And you will also find a full day of events designed to entertain as well as educate. The zoo is accredited by the prestigious American Zoo and Aquarium Association and is also an institutional member of the American Association of Zoo Keepers, Inc.
