Reston Zoo - A Petting Zoo in Vienna, Virginia


Reston Zoo - A Petting Zoo in Vienna, Virginia
© Reston Zoo

Reston Zoo is a thirty-acre zoo in the heart of Fairfax County, Virginia. Get "up close and personal" with the animals and feed them too! See alligators, camels, reptiles, zebras, antelope, bison, ostrich, and lots more. You can bottle-feed lambs and hand-feed goats, sheep and llamas. Kids love the opportunity to take care of the animals.

Reston Zoo is a great place to take young children. There is plenty to keep them happy and this small zoo is very interactive and much easier to get around than the National Zoo. You can see everything in an hour or two without getting exhausted. A hay ride is included in the price and pony rides are available for an extra fee.
