Located in the heart of the Zoo, the Great Meadow is a prime location for your next picnic. Surrounded by animal houses and crossed by the O-Line, your guests will be amazed by orangutans swinging freely overhead at midday. This open, green space includes a wide brick patio as well as a grassy area for games.
