Lots of Family Fun

The Frank Buck Zoo is one of the most popular family attractions in the community. It has a huge variety of animals, including camels, otters, giraffes, zebras, and monkeys. The zoo also has a feeding section with goats, and a remarkable collection of camp tools dating all the way back to 1930!

After a day at the zoo, why not a walk through historic Leonard Park? It has a full playground, a swimming pool, picnic tables for a nice meal in the sun, and baseball diamonds if you're feeling up for a game.

Finally, make a stop at Circle N Dairy. This fully-functional dairy farm sells impeccable milk and ice cream, and lets you visit the cows that produced it. It's a great mix of education and fun for the whole family.
