Description and Activities:
Caribbean Gardens is a zoo and yet much more than
a zoo. Founded in 1919 as a botanical garden, it was
expanded and opened to the public in 1954 with tropical
lakes and paths lined with exotic birds. Rare animals
were first displayed in exhibits within the garden in
1969. Today, you will find a collection of animals from
apes to zebras surrounded by a 52-acre tropical garden
over eighty years old. And you will also find a full
day of events designed to entertain as well as educate.
The zoo is accredited by the prestigious American Zoo
and Aquarium Association and is also an institutional
member of the American Association of Zoo Keepers, Inc.
