Animal Adventure is the name of the park that April calls home. It has only been open for 4 years, but is a treasure in the small town of Harpursville, NY. I know this because I have personally visited a handful of times with family, having grown up in the next town over. It is also where many other mammals, birds, and cold-blooded animals reside.
The first time I visited Animal Adventure was before April came to the park. Animal Adventure only had one young giraffe at that time, Oliver. My son was only 1, but he would excitedly tell anyone that his favorite animal was a giraffe, so we couldn’t wait to visit!
I was blown away to see how interactive this park was. Not only were we able to feed most of the animals or touch them as they came to the fences, but it was designed in a unique way.
