The Trevor Zoo in Middlebrook has been on my To-Visit list for awhile so yesterday the family and I had took a day trip to Middlebrook. According to the website, Middlebrook School is the only high school that oversees a zoo. At the Trevor Zo, you'll see over 180 exotic and indigenous animals, including 7 animals on the endangered species list like the red panda, and the red wolf.
I liked it because it is small enough to just walk around at your leisure, and you won't get exhausted with kids. It is a beautiful zoo with plenty of shade and lush trees and bushes. (It's set on 6 acres of land). It's a perfect place to take kids on a damp, over-cast, rainy day as the lush trees protect you from the elements. It is very tranquil, quiet, and didn't seem too busy when I visited We walked around visiting the porcupine, red panda, lama, deer, and the emu. I didn't see the wallaby. Is he still there? Maybe he was busy.
Afterwards we drove to Millbrook village and had a nice lunch at the Millbrook Deli. The village of Millbrook also has a very beautiful park with a nice playground. If I had more time, I'd check out Slammin Salmon or Charlotte's in Milbrook. I'd also like to go for a tasting at the Milbrook Winery one day soon. My To-Visit List gets longer every week. Hopefully, next time. For more information on the Trevor Zoo visit their website.
