The original Elephant House was constructed in 1908 and is now the backdrop to amazing outdoor gathering space. Enjoy small bites and beverages next to our famous rhino statues, within our garden area; or get married beneath the infamous copper dome. Zoo Center is a short stroll over to our Children’s Zoo and Animal Farmyard Barn; for those wanting to get up close with goats, sheep, or donkeys. This indoor and outdoor space could accommodate up to 300 guests. Roaming peacocks, chipmunks and black squirrels included at no additional charge.
