Lake Superior Zoo Coupons, Savings and Zoo Park Description for 2018
Situated in Fairmont Park in West Duluth, Lake Superior Zoo sits on over 16½ acres at the base of Spirit Mountain. The rocky hillside, majestic pines and the picturesque Kingsbury Creek, which winds down the hillside through the center of the zoo grounds, makes for an ideal setting for this attraction. The Lake Superior Zoo was started in 1923 by Bert Onsgard, with support from the city of Duluth and the community. The first resident of the zoo was a white-tailed deer named Billy. By late-1920's, the zoo's collection had grown to over 220 animals, birds and reptiles.
