The history of the Palm Beach Zoo is over 50 years of progress, from a small red barn to a major recreational attraction for the City of West Palm Beach. It is hard to believe that a few barnyard animals have evolved to over 500 animals residing at the zoo.
Palm Beach Zoo is located in Dreher Park, formerly known as Bacon Park. In 2014 to emphasize its mission, the Palm Beach Zoo changed its name to the Palm Beach Zoo and Conservation Society. Today, the zoo houses over 500 animals on 23 acres and sees approximately 300,000 visitors annually.
