Bramble Park Zoo
The Bramble Park Zoo in Watertown, South Dakota has been open since 1912. The zoo covers 15 acres of land and harbors near 500 animals which represent 130 different species. The zoo was named after Frank Bramble who gave birds (mainly pheasants) to the town to put on display. The zoo has steadily grown and expanded its exhibits to include a walk-through Australian Adventure exhibit, a shortgrass prairie garden, and an Environmental Center which includes a variety of aquariums. The zoo also has educational activities, smaller animal exhibits, and two educational classrooms.
