LORD'S PARK ZOO
How many towns can boast of having their own zoo? This zoo has been a central feature of Lords Park since its inception. At one time or another, black bears, monkeys, coyotes, foxes, eagles and a wildcat were part of the collection. In 1964, a contest was held to name the lion club that had joined the menagerie. The winning submission was Lord Spark, a word play on the name of Lords Park. Today, bison, elk and deer are the year-round residents. During the summer, several types of barn yard animals arrive to inhabit the petting zoo.
