3 Palms Zoo & Education Center

Feed, interact with, and learn about domestic, wild, and exotic animals in a natural woodland habitat. 3 Palms is the only interactive zoo in Delaware, and offers a chance to see the habits of different animals and learn how to take care of them. From small and large mammals like a donkey and pigs, to birds like the emu and turkey vultures, groups will discover the behavior of different animals and develop an appreciation for wildlife. 3 Palms is also the home of Delaware’s only alligator! Afterwards, walk through the display gardens to get a look at different non-native plants.
