Willow Park Zoo

Willow Park Zoo is a cute little zoo located in Logan, Utah. The entrance fee is $2.50 for adults and $1.50 for children ages 3-11. Children under 3 are free. Though the majority of the animals are birds, there are a lot of awesome animals that I’ve never seen in person before. If you love nature and wildlife then you’ll appreciate and enjoy this small, humble zoo. It’s a quite peaceful place to visit.

I was especially excited to see an enclosure for the Kinkajou, my favorite animal, but was disappointed that the Kinkajou wasn’t in the enclosure at the time I visited.

Next to the Kinkajou enclosure was an enclosure for Capuchin monkeys. One Capuchin was at the top of the enclosure eating bugs off of a tree next to the enclosure.

Beautiful Peacocks roam freely in the zoo and I was surprised to learn that they make a honking sound. I tried to capture them honking on video but every time I hit the record button the peacocks would stop! It’s as if they knew…

The zoo is home to a Bald Eagle who was injured and can no longer fly. A very beautiful creature to see in person. The zoo is also home to a raccoon, an albino porcupine, a yak, an elk, coyotes, bobcats, and a reindeer, among many other animals.

The reindeer was quite a character! He started doing relay laps back and forth along the fence enclosure while my friend and I were trying to snap a picture of him. I guess he had to stay fit for his yearly trip around the world with Santa! 🎅

If you’re in the area and you have kids, stop by and visit this zoo for some good family fun. The kids will have a good time and you’ll get a relaxing couple of hours.

The guest shop is very small. It has a lot of handmade items made by locals. There were some adorable knitted caps for kids in the shape of animals. I wanted to help out but I didn’t have a lot of money to spend when I visited so I purchased a bunch of stickers for $1 each. Any little bit helps, right?

I’ll be visiting the zoo again in the near future to see that Kinkajou!

Until next time. Be safe and happy travels!

Yakety Yak, don't talk back!
