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!
