Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Sprinkler Pad
Play Park is a place where children learn about and re-connect with nature while having fun. It occupies 2.5 acres located just past the Range of the Jaguar and the Wildlife Carousel in the center of the ZooLoop path. Find your way through two mazes and then climb, jump and get wet in the 4,000 square-foot Splash Ground or discover and create in the Discovery Center. Imitate the squirrel monkeys by climbing on vines in front of their exhibit. Climb into a treehouse, on the rock wall or dig for artifacts in the Forest Play area. Watch the penguins through a tunnel window as they swim overhead. Groom and pet the pygmy goats in the Animal Care area. And, enjoy kid-friendly food from the Play Park Café.
*The Splash Ground is only open certain months of the year.
