A Place for Kids
Kids and the zoo just naturally go together. Caldwell Zoo has a special area just for kids—those of the human variety and those of the goat variety.
Just around the corner to the left of the zoo’s front entry is a petting area with several very friendly goats that human kids of all ages can pet. And, within the petting area are grooming brushes so that folks can even “spoil” the goats with some kid-glove treatment.
Nearby the petting area is another kid-friendly spot with sand to play in and tunnels to climb through. A highlight of this area is an old red truck that used to belong to Mr. D. K. Caldwell, the founder of Caldwell Zoo. The truck has been recently refurbished for a second time. It seems that the truck is so loved that our maintenance folks have to fix it rather regularly.
