As part of the new activities promoting entertainment and healthy outdoors fun, Casa de Campo Resort recently opened a new Petting Zoo. The mini-farm located in the facilities of the Equestrian Center has a wide variety of domestic animals ready to be pampered by its visitors.
This new project was conceived by Fernando Arata, director of Casa de Campo Polo Club, and his sons Silvestre and Florencio, as a form of entertainment during the quarantine caused by Covid-19. However, the idea has transcended and is now open to all the public who visit the resort facilities.
At the Casa de Campo Petting Zoo, you can find turtles, chickens, roosters, donkeys, goats, pigs, sheep, ponies, and rabbits. The administration has plans to include other animals as well in the near future.
