Visitors’ Reviews

Nice place to take your family for a day. Lots of good information on most of the exhibits about the behaviors of the animals. More of an I close experience than any zoo I have ever been too. We have a season pass and the kids ask to go all the time during the summer. We can’t wait to return because sometimes you miss a few things you see the best trip.

This animal park is great. Hands down, great. My family enjoy it so much that we purchased the season pass for 2019. It is reasonably priced and so close to home. Its a nice alternative, than driving to Pittsburgh. They have a nice variety of animals like lions, camels, alligators, tigers, wolves and so much more. They do special events during Halloween (evening walk through) and my son’s favorite Super Hero Day. Its not as big as the Pittsburgh Zoo, but it’s still a very nice place to enjoy the day. If you haven’t been there before, please go and enjoy. If you haven’t been there for a while, go back! They have been adding a lot of new exhibits!

Great way to see animals in a way you rarely get to experience in a regular zoo. More to see than in the Pittsburgh Zoo.

FAQs & Rules

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash and all major credit cards. Checks are only accepted for group visits.

Are service animals allowed in the park?

Unfortunately not. We have several species of birds roaming free in the park, and we are considered an open-air aviary. In addition, several of our animals see dogs as a threat, and they could potentially panic or attack, causing injury to themselves, the service animal, or park visitors.

We have 3 motorized scooters that can be rented on a first come first serve basis.  The rental fee is $4 per hour.  ID must be held at gift shop until the scooter is returned.

No. Due to federal animal safety laws, only food provided by the park may enter the park to be fed to our animals. Anyone who violates this policy will be removed from the park without refund.

Once we come into the park, are we allowed to leave and come back?

Yes!  You may leave at any time and return. Just show your receipt upon reentry.

Our concession stand is open on Saturdays and Sundays, weather permitting. There are small snacks available for purchase and we have several beverage vending machines throughout the park available daily.

Where can we eat our packed lunch/dinner while we’re there?

We have picnic areas located in the park. They are free and open to the public on a daily basis. However, group visitors can reserve the picnic areas for their use only. In the event that the picnic area is reserved for a group, there will be a sign listing times that it will be unavailable to the public.

It’s halfway through the summer (or it’s early fall,) is it too late to buy a season pass?

It is never too late to buy a season passes! They are valid for one year from the date of purchase. If you buy your pass on September 25th, it will be good until the following September 25th.

Can season passes be used at both locations and at Keystone Safari?

Yes, season passes can be used at both Living Treasures locations (New Castle & Jones Mills) and Keystone Safari (Grove City). The season pass will grant you access to the walking circle animal exhibits. The safari bus rides and zip line challenge courses will be extra. Go to for updates and pricing.

Do you accept coupons?

We do have some coupons available. Please check your coupon for it’s valid locations, restrictions (no weekend/holiday) and expiration dates.

Where do the animals go in the winter?

Most of the animals have access to heated buildings or shelters and can go in and out as they please. The more temperature sensitive animals are moved into our heated buildings. We have over 10,000 square feet of heated area to ensure all of the animals are safe and comfortable during the winter. Our alligators are moved to a location in Florida in the late fall and return to the park in the late spring.
