Right in the heart of Chittenango sits The Wild Animal Park. This zoo has a huge variety of animals from tigers, lions, and leopards to a jolly giraffe named Jase. They have been open for more than 2 years now and it's one of the best kept secrets in Central New York. That needs to change!

Jeff Taylor is the owner of The Wild Animal Park and he has loved animals since he was a little boy. He couldn't keep his love of animals to himself, so he decided to open a zoo. Located at 7621 Lakeport Road in Chittenango this animal park is not just a zoo, but an experience. According to their website,

Located on 12 acres just north of the Village of Chittenango in New York State, The Wild Animal Park is a zoo that provides a unique opportunity for visitors to learn about a variety of animals. With a wide range of domestic and exotics animals from all over the world, it's a great place for adventure, learning, and hours of family fun!
