Red panda

Nature's Neighborhoods Children's Zoo

Prepare to be immersed in a world of nature, adventure and imaginative play in our award-winning Nature’s Neighborhoods—the George Robert White Fund Children’s Zoo!


Discover our aviary friends, like the hooded crane or the scaly-sided merganser, atop the Eagle's Nest, and get a bird’s eye view of the entire Zoo. Explore the prairie dog neighborhood by getting an up close and personal view of our adorable little critters in the Prairie Dog Pop Up. Play next to the red pandas on our Bamboo Climber, featuring live bamboo plantings and an array of climbable “bamboo” poles. Marvel at the muntjacs, a Southeast Asian deer with a doglike bark. And adventure through the Grass MAze to discover sculpted elements representing animals that live in the grasslands. Don’t forget to visit our turtle friends swimming and sunning themselves in our two turtle ponds!
