It’s summer and what’s summer without a day trip or two after having your vehicle checked at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru or Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep #autoservicecentersinLakewood, NJ. If you have a family or want to do something on a daytime date, why not find a zoo? New Jersey doesn’t have a large scale zoo but the nice thing about Jersey is that nothing is too far away.
The Educational Zoo
For a short day trip, take a ride out to the Staten Island Zoo. It is located on eight acres in suburban West New Brighton on Staten Island in New York City. In 1933 the Staten Island Zoological Society was founded which then created the zoo. The zoo was chartered to be an educational zoo. It opened its doors to the public in 1936. Today, the zoo has over 1,500 animals and 350 species. If you ever wondered about that groundhog that predicts the length of winter for the State of New York, you can meet Staten Island Chuck at the Staten Island Zoo.
In Our Own Backyard
Established in 1977 to provide resources for sick, old, abused, injured or abandoned and not able to exist in its natural habitat, Popcorn Park does just that. Currently, over 200 animals live on the seven acres of Popcorn Park. As you walk through the park, you will learn the stories of what the animals had to endure and overcome and how they came to safety and security in Popcorn Park. It’s not a glamourous park zoo but you can tell the animals are well cared for.
