It’s an experience that brings you closer to nature, offering a chance to interact with these adorable animals in a serene and safe environment. Ideal for visitors of all ages, our petting zoo is a delightful way to connect with the animal kingdom and create lasting memories.

Interactive Feeding at the Petting Zoo

To fully enjoy our petting zoo, head over to our restaurant or café counter to arrange your animal experience. For just $3.50, you can purchase a pot of animal food, choosing the type that suits your preferred animal encounter. 

While alpacas and deers share the same diet and can be fed with the same food, turtles have a different dietary requirement. This allows you to select the appropriate food for the animal you wish to interact with.
