The Animal Gardens is a 40-acre venue which serves as home to The Dancing Horses Theatre and Echo the talking and singing parrot, who recently appeared on America's Got Talent. There are over 200 animals, 16 species of exotics and over 60 hay-eating animals.
This park is located in Delavan, just 10 minutes west of downtown Lake Geneva and has an interactive Baby Animal Barn where you can pet, hold and feed exotic and farm animal babies. There's a kitty room with adorable kitties that you can play with and a bird room where the birds land on little food sticks that you can purchase. It's amazing! Then, roam or ride the trails which will guide you to several exhibits including the Wildlife Exhibit where you can hand-feed deer.
Animal Gardens is open between May 1 and Oct. 31 and closed on Mondays. While you're there, don't forget to visit the year-round attractions: The Dancing Horses Theatre for a live equestrian show. CLICK HERE for more information about the amazing horse show.
Celebrate a birthday with a Dancing Horses Pony Party that includes the Dancing Horses show or Echo's Animal Adventure. Both offer a VIP party room, the Exotic Bird show featuring Echo, the singing parrot from America's Got Talent, rides, and the Animal Gardens Petting Zoo (May – Oct.) with the Baby Barn experience.
