Looking for the unique spot to hold a "wild" party....Tautphaus Park Zoo is the place!

Watch the flock of threatened African Penguins, experience a wallaby mob on the move, discover the gibbons aerobatic abilities or surround yourself with sights and sounds of South American birds in the walk-through aviary. Stop by the Children's Zoo and pat a donkey, feed a lamb or just relax on a bench and enjoy the beautifully landscaped grounds. Over 400 animals, the largest collection in Idaho, call Tautphaus Park Zoo home.

Of course a visit to the zoo would not be complete without a soft drink, hamburger, or corn dog from the Kookaburra Kafe. The Explorer's Station gift shop offers a variety of items including T-shirts and stuffed animals that make a perfect souvenir of your visit. You can celebrate a birthday, take a fun and educational class or hold a family reunion or corporate picnic all right here at the zoo! Support the zoo by becoming a member and enjoy free admission for one year or adopt an animal and help care for the zoo's animal collection. There's excitment, fun and adventure for everyone at the Tautphaus Park Zoo!

From family reunions to corporate picnics, weddings to kid's birthday parties, the zoo is a perfect backdrop for any special occasion.
