Springmoor is

beauty with remarkable depth

North Carolina Zoo

May 22, 2018 - 9:00 am

Let’s go walk with the animals, talk with the animals, run and….well, you get the idea.  Spring is a wonderful time to go to the zoo.

It’s the nation’s largest walk-through, natural habitat zoo. Situated in central North Carolina near the scenic Uwharrie Mountains are 5 miles of walkways meandering through 500 acres of carefully recreated habitats of various African and North American animal species. Explore the Watani Grasslands with the elephants and rhinos. The Acacia Station resembles the savannas of Kenya. The Forest Aviary has hundreds of exotic, brilliantly colored birds. The Sonar Desert is filled with creepy-crawly creatures. And the Rocky Coast is filled with seals, sea lions and polar bears.

This is a day where you can roam the zoo at your leisure. Wear your comfortable shoes to enjoy the park. There are a number of places to eat lunch – sandwiches, burgers, ice cream and other snacks are available. Snack carts are on the walking paths.

Reservations are requested by Thursday, May 17 at 9am
