Today is World Primate Day! ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒ

Over 200 species belong to the primate family including monkeys (like our Squirrel monkeys), apes (like our white-handed gibbons) and prosimians (like our ringtailed lemurs).

Primates serve an important role in maintaining healthy forests and ecosystems, which is one of many reasons why protecting them is so important!

Whoโ€™s had a chance to meet Bonnie & Clyde our African crowned cranes since they joined us this June?

Have you seen them dance? ๐Ÿ’ƒ

All cranes, young and old alike, participate in elaborate, enthusiastic "dancing," often just for the fun of it! For the young, dancing helps to develop physical and social skills. It serves as a courtship ritual for the single adults and gets established pairs ready to breed, too. In a flock of cranes, once a dance starts, it can quickly become contagious, with all the cranes joining in!

First we would like thank all of our visitors who have followed Leesburg Animal Parkโ€™s safety protocols during Phase 2 and Phase 3 of our reopening. We truly appreciate your cooperation as we navigate through these times!

That being said, it is important to us that we continue to listen to guidelines provided by the CDC and our local and state governments regarding use of masks, so we can continue be a fun and safe environment for all.

As of August 7, The CDC recommends all people 2 years of age or older wear a mask in public settings (indoor or outdoor) so we will now require all guest ages 2+ to wear a mask at the park. We believe that if you are unable to comply, you should not visit Leesburg Animal Park for your own safety and for the safety of others.

Thank you for understanding. Letโ€™s all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Happy #InternationalCatDay! ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ†

Servals are medium-sized wild cats with tawny, black-spotted coats and long necks and long legs that allow them to see over savanna grasses. They also have large ears and an acute sense of hearing๐Ÿ‘‚

We care for two beautiful servals at the park, know their names?

Dear friends of Leesburg Animal Park,

What our 2020 Pumpkin Village will look like:

- We will have hand sanitizers at each activity station, guests must hand sanitize before participating

- There will be no enclosed moon bounce. We are planning for some other awesome alternatives that allow for a more open space for social distancing.

- The wagon rides will be replaced with a scavenger hunt.

- Our barn animal contact area will remain as feed over the fence only.

- Indoor play areas will remain closed.

- Will we still have amazing performers on the weekends โ€“ get ready to SING & DANCE!

- Weekend guests will receive a delicious complimentary Halloween cookie and cider.

Schedule and Ticketing:

The Pumpkin Village will be open Tuesday โ€“ Friday, 9:30am-5pm and Saturday & Sunday 9:30am-6pm (closed Mondays excluding Columbus day).
