The Children’s Ranch and Petting Corral will be closed temporarily in order to address an ongoing issue with the brick flooring. Anyone who has visited the area has probably noticed buckling sidewalks and bricks popping out of place. This has been a problem since the first days of opening the exhibit, and it’s a problem we cannot permanently solve while the space is filled with people and animals. We are addressing the issue promptly and will re-open as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
