About Animal Encounters! 

The Early Childhood Recreation Program brings the petting zoo to you!
Get ready for lots of smiles as the petting commences, and the excitement is electric as we play, pet and feed these adorable animals in the petting zoo. There will be a vending machine which will dispense food for the animals, so please bring quarters if you would like to feed the critters. A yummy treat from Silver Spoon Ice Cream & Sweets will be included! Kids and parents can stick around afterwards at the playground nearby and hang out with new friends.

This event will be held at the Wildwood Community Park at the large pavilion nearest the playground.

All Early Childhood Recreation Programs last approximately 45 minutes, followed by an ice cream treat.

Parents/guardians must stay with the child during the entire program.
