For some reason, there is a zoo on the country road in Elkton, MD. MD-273 isn’t that lonely, but it is definitely off the beaten path. Nobody I know have heard of Plumpton Park Zoo, let alone visited it. I have only know about it from the drives and rides along MD-273. It was never on my list to visit, but the weather was nice, and I thought I remember the zoo has giraffes. Plumpton Park Zoo takes in exotic pets that, I assume, owners aren’t capable or willing to take care of. Thus, in the middle of nowhere, comes a surprising fun zoo.
The zoo is much larger than I imagined, and contains much more animals that just rabbits, ducks and sheep. Chickens and peacocks run free, while animals “roam” in cages. The zoo keepers were feeding the animals all over the morning, so these animals were active while I was here. Enjoy the pictures!
And yes, there were giraffes. You can pay $5 to feed it lettuce. Romaine.
