We are Delaware's only hands on, interactive petting Zoo! Here guests can socialize with exotic, wild & domestic animals in a lush garden surrounding.  Our petting zoo is a fun learning experience for kids of all ages.

We offer hand feeding and petting of Llamas, Alpaca, Goats, Ducks, Sheep, Geese, Donkey, Chickens, Pigs & Mini Pigs, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Hedgehog, Turtles, Ferret, and an Emu. We also house a Raccoon, Opossum, Skunk, Turkeys and many other rare & exotic birds for viewing. Our Asia Aviary is home to Red jungle fowl, Peacocks, Exotic Pheasants, Black Sumatras, Mandarin Ducks, Indian Fantail Pigeons, and Partridge. Migratory Waterfowl (including Wood Ducks), Pheasants, Turtles, and Cackling Geese call the North American Habitat home. Finally our new Africa Habitat houses a pair of White Faced Whistling Tree Ducks, Guinea Fowl, and Side-Neck Turtles. Our grand attraction is Tick-Tock, Delaware's only Alligator!

We also offer tours of our display gardens. Visitors are able to see hardy palms, yucca, bamboo, and exotics in a lush tropical atmosphere. Our display gardens feature thousands of rare and exotic plants not often seen in casual gardens. 3 Palms display gardens feature plants from all around the world which include: desert, alpine, tropic, woodland, Asian, and many others.
