A Fun Petting Zoo in Halifax, PA

touchy_feelyAll parents want to create meaningful memories with their kids. For an experience your children will remember for years to come, visit the petting zoo at Lake Tobias Wildlife Park.

About Our Petting Zoo

Children and adults alike will enjoy our collection of friendly creatures from all over the world. We have animals of all shapes and sizes, from the smallest African pygmy goats to long-necked llamas. Visit everything from domestic farm animals and exotics like camels and alpacas. We take special care of our creatures, so they are happy and well-socialized. Our animals love attention, but keep in mind that they are not trained, so they may jump on you or nibble on your clothes. Also, not all animals in the petting zoo are available for petting.

Petting Zoo Information

We have a booth within the petting zoo that sells cups of carrots and pellets that you may feed to the animals. Additionally, there are coin-operated food dispensers with other treats you can give to the animals. The USDA carefully regulates these animals’ diets, so please keep in mind that only food sold at the park may be given to any of our zoo creatures. This is to protect them from accidentally being exposed to any outside contaminants.

While you’re visiting Lake Tobias Wildlife Park, take one of our safari tours and visit the Reptiles & Exotics facility. You might even see one of our crew members showing off a special baby animal!

Please note: The petting zoo closes at 5:30 PM on weekdays and 6:30 PM Saturdays and Sundays. This is half an hour before the rest of the park closes. Also, children under the age of 8 must be accompanied by a chaperone of at least 16 years of age.

*Time Tip: Approx. 20 minutes needed to visit the petting zoo.
