Binder Park Zoo is 3 mi. s. of I-94 exit 100 at 7400 Division Dr. Exotic animals live in a natural park setting. Visitors can board a train to tour the safari-style habitat of Wild Africa, where they can purchase biscuits to feed to the giraffes. Among the species represented in the zoo are the African wild dog, bald eagle, green iguana, Mexican wolf, Mongolian wild horse, red kangaroo and red panda.
The zoo has elevated wooden boardwalks and the wooden Binda Conservation Carousel. There are hands-on activities and regularly changing exhibits at the Conservation Discovery Center, a children’s learning center. Zookeepers give talks twice daily at various animal exhibits. In the Wildlife Discovery Theatre, with seating for 300, several animals are brought out to allow visitors to have a closer interaction and more in-depth understanding.
