Attractions participating in Kids Free November:
Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens
The Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens is located on approximately 117 acres and sits at the mouth of the Trout River. The zoo is active in animal conservation, participating in more than 50 national and international conservation initiatives and more than 95 Species Survival Plans. It is home to over 2,000 animals and 1,000 plants.
One of our favorite past times and going and enjoying the zoo here in Jacksonville! It's one of the oldest zoos in Florida, this year they will be celebrating 103 years! They've come a very long way since they opened their doors! You can go and spend a whole day exploring the 12 different animal exhibits and 7 garden exhibits. They also have a really nice play ground for the kiddos to shed more of that extra energy.
The Catty Shack
In 1994 the Catty Shack began as "The Florida Panther project". In 2000, the Catty Shack Ranch Wildlife Sanctuary was granted its nonprofit 501©3 status and then in 2004 they became licensed and opened to the public. They give guided tours that last approximately 40-45 minutes. These tours include information about their facilities, facts about the species they house – both in the wild and in captivity, personal stories about some of the residents, explanation of habitats, enrichment activities, food, and much more.
Jacksonville's Museum of Science & History is a private, non-profit museum located on the Southbank Riverwalk. M.O.S.H strives to increase the knowledge and understanding of the natural environment and history of Jacksonville as well as Northeast Florida. M.O.S.H focuses on awareness and appreciation of science and history. They offer exhibits and events that stimulate learning in visitors of any age.
Kingsley Plantation is the site of a former estate that was named for an early owner, Zephaniah Kingsley, who spent 25 years there. You can explore the grounds which include the slave quarters, barn, waterfront, plantation house, kitchen house, and interpretive garden. The visitor contact station/bookstore is located in a 1920s building adjacent to the plantation buildings. It's full of interesting history!
Pumpkin Hill Preserve
Pumpkin Hill Preserve State Park is a Florida State Park, located 12 miles north of Jacksonville, west of Big and Little Talbot Islands. If you're looking for a great area to hike, fish, go for a picnic or just get away from the hustle of the city life, Pumpkin Hill is a perfect place to go! This state park protects one of the largest contiguous areas of coastal uplands remaining in Duval County. The uplands protect the water quality of the Nassau and St. Johns rivers, ensuring the survival of aquatic plants and animals, and providing an important refuge for birds.
