New Fisher-Price playground opening at the Buffalo Zoo!

To coincide with the May 22 opening of the Buffalo Zoo’s new Delta Sonic Heritage Farm, the Zoo is opening a brand-new playground with the assistance of Fisher-Price!

With a design that complements the barnyard theme of both the Heritage Farm
and Fisher-Price’s signature barn playset, the new playground will feature a three-level spiral
slide, a spacious tube crawlway, small “peaks” for climbing fun, balance beams, a fun forest
and a concentration blocks panel for some mental playtime!

The Buffalo Zoo is the third oldest zoo in the country and welcomes more than 460,000 visitors per year. In 2002, a master plan was launched to transform the Zoo. The Delta Sonic Heritage Farm will be the first project built as part of Phase II of the Buffalo Zoo’s master plan. The family-friendly exhibit will recreate a historic farm from 1850s and will replace the current Children’s Zoo.
