Many people may not know this, but there is a small zoo located in Baraboo.  It’s called Ochsner  Park Zoo. It is two acres of fun that is free to visit, donations are accepted for continued upkeep.  It was opened in 1926 and has been quite a nice place for visitors for generations. Let’s take a look!
