Let’s Visit the Animals at the Boat Basin Park!

What a beautiful day to visit the Boat Basin Animal Park! George and Little Jack love visitors, especially if you bring a treat…but in case you don’t, the City of Bainbridge makes sure they are well fed and cared for!
Did you know?
* There are two donkeys, George and Little Jack, as well as three goats, and thirteen emus.
* At feeding time, all it takes is a quick blow of the City truck horn and George and Little Jack come running.
* Animals are fed three times a week (on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings).
* The animals are fed a mixture of corn, sweet feed, and worm medicine.
* March through November, animals are given two bales of hay each month.
