One of the biggest secrets kept by Huntsville locals is the Harmony Park Safari and Drive Through Zoo, tucked away on a small back road in Owens Crossroads.
People can live for years in the area and not know it exists, even though this hidden gem is a guaranteed adventure for all ages.
Harmony Park Safari
Tucked away on its grounds is a kangaroo habitat, a reptile room (with all sorts of creepy crawlies), a tortoise trail, and their drive through zoo.
Guests can purchase an optional bucket of feed to give to the animals in the drive through zoo, which include llamas, bison, zebras, and some very friendly emus.
The feed bucket is expected by most of the animals in the drive through zoo, so if you don’t bring one, expect to receive some condescending looks from the wildlife.
