Park History
The WWI Memorial Zoo was started in 1968 with only 2 deer. In 1970, a memorial was dedicated to Pvt. Edward P. Nolan, as his efforts were instrumental in the establishment of the WWI Park. We now have grown to much more.
 
Near the Fire Tower in the playground parking lot is a great lookout point as the park is located 390 feet above sea level and is the highest point in Bristol County, on Watery Hill.

Zoo Rules
Dogs must be leashed and kept 30 feet back from animals' fences. Please clean up after your dog!
 
Please help keep our park clean as litter is a chocking hazard to our animals.
 
Do not stick fingers or arms in the animals' fences as they can bite!
 
Please watch out for signs indicating animals' dietary needs.
 
Respect our park and animals and have a fun and safe day!
 
No outside food for the animals - what is offered at the park only. Once empty, grain machines will be taken inside.

Things to See & Do
There are plenty of things to see and do the next time you come to the Park.  Our staff works hard to maintain the Park and make it an enjoyable place to visit. Bring your family and friends and spend the afternoon or the day.  Remember to bring the camera!
 
The park is equipped with numerous picnic areas, a ski slope, playgrounds, an open field for sports (used most for lacrosse), a sledding hill, and a petting zoo.
Dedicated in memory of Julia Cekala, the popular Julia's Garden has a wonderful playground, grass areas, benches, and more for everyone to enjoy.
You’ll have lots of fun at the large playground across from the fire tower. There is also a small playground for the younger kids right next to the zoo building.
The newest spot is the "Beach Area," it has a little board walk and lots of sand castle toys and shovels.

 
Pack a lunch and use one of the many picnic areas - don’t forget to bring dessert!
 
Come and see all your animal friends - ducks, peacocks, pheasants, deer, miniature horses, donkeys, llamas, emus, goats, sheep, pigs and more!
 
Walk the nature trails in the Park and Arboretum; be sure to look for signs of wildlife.  Within the Park, you may see wild turkeys, fox, wild deer, woodchucks, squirrels, chipmunks, and
rabbits.  Also, you will find many different types of birds.


Petti Field is located at the rear of WWI Park.
