Long's Park Petting Zoo

As far as I can tell, there is no solid information online anywhere
(certainly not on the Long's Park website) about the petting zoo,
except to say that it exists. So I actually went to the park today to
look at the actual signs at the petting zoo, and thought I'd post it
in case anyone else had the same problem. So here's what I found out:

-open Mid-May through Labor Day
-hours: 10am to 3pm weekdays and weekends
-BUT they close for lunch, 11:45-12:35
-it appears to be free. People were wandering in and out through the
gates and there was no ticket area or anything like that.
-I saw horses, a llama, and veterinary certificates for potbelly pigs.
There are more animals but I was looking at the signs more intently
than at the animals.
-no strollers are allowed inside the fence

The horses are not part of the petting zoo. The Police stables are adjoining on the property and theae beauties are the Mounted Police for downtown Lancaster. However there are goats and many cats that call the petting zoo home.

Thank You Kindly for investigating and sharing all of this info. I had been searching the internet for info about the petting zoo and was becoming discouraged until I came across this.
