Pymatuning Deer Park

This deer park doesn’t just have deer: groups will love experiencing the over 250 animals at this park, including Siberian tigers, African lions, camels, black bears, primates, and, of course, several species of deer—which groups are encouraged to feed! Younger visitors can enjoy a Kiddie Zoo, where they can feed and pet a variety of baby and domestic animals. Visitors can also feed the Parakeets in the Budgie Barn, and, for smaller groups, horseback rides along a wilderness trail are available.
