Or consider treating dad to a zipping experience, where dads can “Zip for Half-Price” at the Adventure Park! Purchase Adventure Park wristbands at the NEW Zoo Visitors Center before making your way to the Adventure Park Base Camp Building.

“HeartBound Greyhound Adoption” will be on-site to meet with visitors at the front of the Visitor Center, near the entrance to the Zoo, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. This dog adoption organization serves East-Central Wisconsin and will have live retired racing greyhounds for you to meet.
