Central Parq Features

Visitors gather on the Central Parq lawn for Friday night Zoo Music concerts during the summer.

Enjoy lunch at the Cottonwood Café, take a ride on the Endangered Species Carousel, feed the ducks and observe the peacocks that wander around the park.

The Colores Kids Playground is a great place for parents to kick back while children play on the equipment or cool off in the fountains. Don't forget to take a ride on the T. Kevin McNicholas Endangered Species Carousel, which boasts 30 hand-crafted endangered animals from across the world.
