  It's our 85th Anniversary!

This summer marks the 85th year that the Children's Zoo has been open! We have undergone so many changes since the zoo was founded in 1929! Do you remember the whale? Or the ark?

In the spring of 1930, the zoo collection consisted of a beaver, a coyote, a fox, bears, raccoons, timber wolves, owls, and hawks. Today, the Children's Zoo is home to over 150 animal residents! In 2009, we took a HUGE step toward a higher standard for animal care by becoming accreditted by the Association of Zoo's and Aquariums (AZA). In doing this, we joined the ranks of the Detroit Zoo, the Potter Park Zoo, and over 200 other zoos nationwide!

We would love to see your old pictures of the zoo! If you're interested in sharing your memories, stop by throughout the summer to drop off a copy (we can make one), or mail it to the following:

Children's Zoo at Celebration Square
