Play Nice: Our Petting Zoo Guidelines

Play Gently

Always pet animals with a calm and gentle touch. Use open palms and avoid grabbing, pulling, or poking the animals.

Play Respectfully

Give animals their space, and avoid chasing, cornering, or disturbing them while they’re eating or resting.

Play Cleanly

Be sure to sanitize your hands after visiting with the animals by making use of our hand sanitizing stations.

Play by the Rules

Follow all posted signs, barriers, and staff instructions to ensure the safety and well-being of everyone at the petting zoo.

Play with Supervision

Keep a close eye on children, ensuring they follow the Play Nice guidelines and enjoy a fun, safe experience.

Play Responsibly

Refrain from feeding animals anything except the designated food provided by the petting zoo.

Play with Care

Report any concerns or issues to the staff immediately. If an animal seems distressed notify a staff member right away.

Play Mindfully

Remember that animals can be sensitive to sudden movements, loud noises, and unfamiliar objects. Keep personal belongings secure and avoid bringing items like balloons, whistles, or other items that could startle the animals.

Play Conscientiously

Respect the petting zoo environment by disposing of trash properly and being mindful of other guests’ experiences.
