Kronkosky's Tiny Tot Nature Spot
Kronkosky’s Tiny Tot Nature Spot at the San Antonio Zoo, a major initiative of the Foundation, is the nation’s first zoo exhibit designed to provide young children ages 0-5 years and their parents with interactive exploring experiences featuring nature and animals. An exciting addition to the community’s assets for children, Kronkosky’s Tiny Tot Nature Spot, this $5 million project of the Foundation is a 1.5 acre section of the Zoo developed especially for children 5 and under and their families. It has several activity centers for children including a sandy beach with running water, a campground setting, a place to discover turtle eggs, getting nose to nose with prairie dogs, getting eye to eye with large fish and many other features that capture the interest of young children. Play leaders are assigned to these areas to monitor children and encourage play and exploration. Young children are exposed to sights, sounds, smells and tastes that stimulate their minds and their senses.
