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.
