Default Animal Park

Does anyone have any photos of the Animal Park that used to be across from Funspot. It had the goats and a suspended bridge out front for the goats to cross.

I know this is an old thread but I will have to look through my mom's photo albums some time, her brother and his wife Arthur and Shirley Hames ran it for several years. We got to go behind the scenes at all times of the year even when it wasn't open. We even got to play with the mountain lion cub when it was very little. They loved all the animals they cared for

Weirs Times and the Winnipesaukee Museum would be likely sources. That may not be much help, I don't think, if you're looking for someone to post pix here.

I found this postcard on Photopost. Was this the one across from Funspot? I'm not sure which location the picture is from. Also found this:

If you look hard enough into something on the forum you might find Jayne Mansfield:

Yes that is the location across from Funspot (not sure about the photo though). The business was bought sometime in the 1970's by the Baldis (owners of the Drive In) and renamed... I think to Enchanted Forest.. I worked there briefly in the late 70s.
