CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Old MacDonald's Farm, the Bever Park Children's Zoo maintained and operated by Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation, will open for the season on Saturday.

The zoo is open daily through October 6, from 10 a.m.-7 p.m., with the exception of the Schuknecht Waterfowl Exhibit, which closes at 6:30 p.m. Also, some exhibits may close 15 to 20 minutes early due to feeding schedules.

Old MacDonald's Farm is home to a donkey, goats, chickens, domestic ducks, parrots, rabbits, ferrets, and North American waterfowl.

There are some new additions to the zoo this year as well, including ducklings and piglets. The baby animals will only be out if the weather is warm.

Children's programs are also available at Old MacDonald's Farm.

Make and Take Story Hour, a free program for preschool-aged children presented by Cedar Rapids Library staff, will take place Fridays beginning June 7 from 10-10:45 a.m. at Old MacDonald's Pavilion. Other Cedar Rapids Parks & Recreation programs are available as well.
