Little Rock Zoo Opens New Playground

The new Jambo Gym Playground was designed for children 5-12 and features equipment accessible for those who are disabled.

There's something else for the kids to enjoy at the Little Rock Zoo -- a new playground.

The Little Rock Zoo recently debuted its new Jambo Gym Playground at Café Africa.

The project was started by volunteers who approached the Zoo about building a new playground suitable for children ages 5-12.  Volunteers raised the funds to build the playground from private donations, in addition to funds from General Improvement Funds from the State of Arkansas, the One-Cent City Sales Tax passed in September of 2011, and from the Arkansas Zoological Foundation.

The new playground features equipment accessible for disabled children.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with last admissions at 4 p.m. Call (501) 666-2406 for more information.
