Good Zoo & Benedum Planetarium

Visitors of all ages will find something pleasing at our zoo which is dedicated to the memory of a seven-year-old boy named Philip Mayer Good, who loved nature.

NEW Featured Exhibit: ZEBRAS!
For the first time in the zoo’s history, zebras will be grazing on the grounds of the Good Zoo!  Visitors will be able to see two species, the common Grant’s zebra, and the endangered Grevy’s zebra.

The zebras are a permanent addition to the zoo’s growing collection of rare and unique species. They are exhibited in the ostrich field along with our 3 ostriches, and may be viewed from either the train or the ostrich viewing area.

Visit our Outback Exhibit, featuring kangaroos and wallabies, and stop next door at Lorikeet Landing where you can feed these friendly parrots right from your hand!

See the new wild African dogs and watch the playful river otters. See the South American spectacled bears, plus an ocelot, red pandas and tamarin monkeys. And, don't miss the meerkats and naked molerats!

The indoor Discovery Lab is designed to make learning about animals fun and easy for children. It includes a variety of hands on activities as well as animal exhibits such as the colorful poison dart frog and tiger salamander.

Visit our barn filled with friendly domestic animals such as llamas, pigs and donkeys. You can even feed the goats!

Take a break and watch a show in the Benedum Planetarium where the big screen pulls you right into the action.

Journey through the zoo on the historic C.P. Huntington Train Ride. This one and a half mile train ride will take you by the grasslands exhibit featuring intriguing ostrich.

A walk through the Wonders of the Wetlands will introduce visitors to our crane, bald eagles and various other plants and animals that call these fragile areas home.
