Pine Grove Zoo has been welcoming guests since 1913 and is proud to host visitors throughout Minnesota as well as the United States. Pine Grove Zoo is dedicated to promoting educational, environmental and conservation messages while creating lifelong memories for families and visitors. We realize the importance of family and community and strive to make positive, meaningful and life-changing memories, while creatively inserting our enthusiasm for nature.
We invite you to stroll along our paved paths to encounter a variety of exotic, as well as native wildlife, at home in their spacious, natural habitats. Our zebras enjoy seeing our visitors and will greet you as you enter. You will enjoy watching our newest additions of Red Kangaroos as they relish in their vast surroundings with our Emus in our Australian Exhibits. Our Bobcats love basking in the sun and our Siberian Tigers enjoy seeing visitors as they will often entertain visitors as they walk past them. Our Cougar, one of our only wild-caught animals, is truly a beauty with her mesmerizing stare.
Our wolves, both Arctic and Gray are beauties in their own right. Visitors are always amazed at the beauty of our North American Exhibits with the immense size of the Bison and gracefulness of our Elk and Pronghorn as they casually meander. Our Prairie Dogs are always a favorite for young and old to watch as they are artic in the warmth of the day. To enhance your Zoo visit, our interactive petting stables encourages you to recapture the simple wonders of these gentle animals.
Nestled next to Pine Grove Zoo, amongst the last standing grove of white pines in Minnesota, are serene walking trails as well as a large picnic and playground area.
