John Ball Zoo Society

John Ball Zoo Society

This boutique Zoo packs 2,000 animals, spectacular views, hands-on animal experiences, rides, and the only funicular in the midwest into a hilly scenic 14-acres. An impressive animal collection features lions, tigers and bears along with a troop of chimpanzees, penguins, lemurs, reptiles, and more. The Zoo offers a 400-foot zipline ride and a 4-story ropes course to keep the teens and tweens interested! The Zoo is nestled in a large park with plenty of picnic areas.
