There’s something exciting and new coming to our wonderful Fresno Chaffee Zoo! For a limited the Zoo will be home to Zoorassic Park presented by The Kirkland Foundation, a self-guided exhibit featuring 21 lifelike and life-size dinosaurs that move and make sounds.
The exhibit will open to the public starting this Saturday, June 8, at 8:30 a.m. As part of the grand opening celebration, the first 100 children to enter at the Zoo admissions booth starting at 8:30 a.m. with paid entry will receive a free ticket to the Zoorassic Park exhibit. (Children must be accompanied by an adult with paid entry to the Zoo and the exhibit.) The morning’s festivities will include additional opportunities to learn about paleontology and interact with the exhibit through special photo opportunities and appearances by mascots and puppets.
Other limited-time programs for dinosaur enthusiasts throughout the exhibit’s time at the Zoo will include dinosaur-themed birthday party packages, paleontology summer camps, and a T. Rex adopt-an-animal.
In addition to presenting sponsor The Kirkland Foundation, wonderful local sponsors Haron Jaguar Land Rover and Fresno State are also to thank for this exciting, kid-tastic exhibit.
