Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens
Help your kids discover their wild sides with preschool programs at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. The Story Safari Series introduces little ones (ages one to five) to all sorts of animal kingdom friends via favorite themed books like Bugs for Lunch, a gross-but-funny detailing of insect-crunching critters; and Thank You Bear, a heartwarming tale of a bear who searches for the perfect gift for his mouse friend and learns a thing or two about shared values along the way. Infants and toddlers are easily entertained in the Butterfly Hollow. Watching the Tuxedo Coast penguins waddle; touching a stingray at Stingray Bay; and climbing, jumping and splashing in the Play Park and Splash Ground are always fun. And what little one doesn’t love a train or carousel ride?
