New Carousel Animal At Scovill Zoo

   

Longtime volunteer Barb Janes has made this new addition possible by purchasing the giraffe.

 Exciting news awaits visitors at Scovill Zoo for the 2024 season! In celebration of the Decatur Park District’s 100th anniversary, the zoo is thrilled to introduce a new carousel animal – a majestic giraffe.
     This addition promises to enhance the unique zoo experience and provide a delightful opportunity for children who may prefer static animals on carousels.
     The giraffe carousel animal has been carefully selected as a static animal, making it an ideal choice for children who may be hesitant or less confident about riding carousel animals that move up and down. Its still presence creates a gentle transition and introduces young riders to the magical world of carousel rides.
     At Scovill Zoo, longtime volunteer Barb Janes has made this new addition possible by purchasing the giraffe. The giraffe carousel animal has been crafted with exceptional craftsmanship by Eric Tomlinson and the team at All Around Carousels, LTD, located in Mansfield, Ohio. As an enchanting touch, a playful monkey can be spotted peeking out from under the saddle of the giraffe, adding whimsy and creating a delightful surprise for riders.
