How many communities can brag that they have a Zoo? Reston can! For 25 years, the Reston Zoo has been delighting families with intimate opportunities to feed and get to know a wide variety of wild animals. The barn houses goats and sheep and their babies. They all love to be fed, either with a bottle or a cup of animal feed. The reptile house has snakes and lizards, though sometimes you have to really look to find them. Check out the many different types of chickens, including one that looks like it's wearing slippers. Monkeys, porcupines, alligators, tortoises are all on hand to surprise you. The highlight of the Reston Zoo visit has to be the Zoofari Tour - an open truck that makes the circuit around the 30-acre property. Here, the guide points out the various animals including zebra, emu, camels and more. Sometimes an ostrich makes a friendly impromptu inspection of the truck. Birthday parties at the Reston Zoo are always a hit. The Reston Zoo offers a season pass - a great investment for a family of animal lovers.
