The Lee Richardson Zoo is often referred to as an oasis on the plains. Occupying almost half of the 110-acre Finnup Park, the zoo is a favorite gathering spot for nearly a quarter million visitors each year. The population of animals on display at the zoo provide an example of wildlife found throughout the world. Over 300 animals representing 110 species are displayed at the zoo, ranging from the elusive snow leopard to the flashy and fancy flamingo.
