• Overview

    See tigers, cougars, a lion, bears, monkeys, deer, reptiles, bobcats, horses, goats and so many more. Popcorn Park is unique in that it is a sanctuary solely for rescued exotics, wildlife, farm animals and birds. These animals may have been abandoned, abused, injured, kept inappropriately as pets, or handicapped, but all are now safe and in excellent health.
    You will find a picnic area under the pines to enjoy your own box lunch or you can purchase cold drinks, ice cream, popcorn and peanuts. No outside foods are allowed in Popcorn Park. For safety reasons, pets are not allowed in Popcorn Park.
    Hours: 11 am - 5 pm, 7 days a week; Holidays: 11 am - 2 pm.
    A small admission fee helps supports the animals; children under 3 are free, as are member of the Wildlife Club, Zoological Society or Share-A-Pet Program. Just show your card! The refuge is also free for our military.
    Come visit Popcorn Park and see what love can do.
