New Red Panda Experience, Now Open

We are excited to welcome a new Red Panda Experience to Hemker Park & Zoo! Guests can now get up-close and personal with our bamboo-loving red pandas during our one-of-a-kind close encounter experience. Spend time with the Animal Care team and learn about the care and conservation of this endangered species.

A Legacy of Love

Founded by Mark & Joan Hemker, the zoo has become a labor of love to honor Mark’s legacy since his passing 2006.
