The Lincoln Park Zoo's Big Red Barn was built in 2000 with the support of the Manitowoc County Farm Bureau and Manitowoc County Dairy Promotions. The barn is located on the north end of the zoo next to the playground. The Big Red Barn is home to a variety of young farm animals, on loan from local farmers, which visitors can watch grow throughout the summer months. It is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Please remember the Big Red Barn is not a petting barn and visitors are not allowed to touch or feed the animals.
